Senate District 41
“Taking care of people is my life’s work, and the well-being and health of this community will always be my focus. This includes underrepresented members of my community that often don’t feel they have a voice in legislature. I aim to be a legislator who will listen to the concerns of the LGBTQ community, advocate tenaciously for the best interests of all those I represent, and continue to report back on the process we’ve made.”

“The truth is this: Our community in Acworth and Kennesaw is welcoming, kind, diverse, and growing. We’ve changed a lot in the past few decades. And we know that, in 2020, we deserve better representation than politicians who would vote to restrict women’s rights, discriminate against the LGBTQ+ community, and cut funding from public schools. At the same time, we’ve had the same State Representative for the past 15 years—and he’s led dangerous efforts to encourage LGBT discrimination, criminalize women’s right to choose, limit access to healthcare, and so much more. I believe that’s wrong, and that’s why I decided to challenge him in 2018. After coming up short in 2018—which is not a great feeling, I’ll admit—my team and I decided to jump in again this year, do the work we need to win, and build a progressive coalition because these issues continue to be urgent for my family, my community, and my generation.
As I continue to talk with voters every day and share our message, I point to a line I stated in my 2018 announcement video that resonates with voters across our community’s political spectrum: “All people—no matter how you look, who you love, or where you come from—deserve equal rights under the Constitution.” This message of not just equality, but equity for our community’s many diverse people, populations, and families, is a goal I continue to be committed to. It’s a breath of fresh air from our current representatives, and I look forward to working hard in January 2021 to engage LGBT Georgians and make discrimination, once and for all, a relic of the past. That’s what the 21st Century looks like, and it’s reason for us all to be optimistic.”

“I have always been mindful of LGBTQ issues and views. My sister is a lesbian and my brother is gay, I have always been supportive of their decision. The votes as the voice of the LGBTQ community are just as important as any one else.”

House District 56
“As a Gay man and native Georgian, I am clear about what our challenges are and there is a guarantee that I will fight every day for our community. I know first hand the discrimination many in our community face daily whether it be in their professional or personal lives. Every citizen in the state of Georgia, no matter who they love, or how they identify themselves deserves to live in a state where they are able to work, live, and thrive without fear of persecution, hate or ridicule. I am committed to this fight because it has literally been the fight of my entire life – to ensure every one has the opportunity to live their full life.”

“I have proven my dedication to this community over the years, first by helping set up the first LGBT advocacy in the Army at West Point in the wake of the repeal of DADT, and continuing today as a member of the Boards of Directors for our LGBT center. I put living my life authentically at the core of who I am and of my candidacy. As a State Representative, I will use my experience as a member of this community to be an advocate on behalf of LGBT people and work across the aisle to advance our issues’ cause.”

“I am an out member of the LGBTQ community who has a track record of winning elections in Gwinnett and have done so as a longtime advocate and supporter of LGBTQ rights and issues. My election would make me the first openly LGBTQ County Commissioner Chair/County Executive in the state of Georgia representing almost 1,000,000 people in Georgia’s second largest county. I would make passing a strong inclusive non discrimination ordinance a top priority for our county and would work to expand LGBTQ visibility in our county.”
