Senator Cory Booker on LGBTQ Rights

In a March 31, 2019 speech at the Human Rights Campaign, Booker expressed his opposition to the Trump Administration’s transgender military ban, as well as the Department of Justice’s refusal to protect LGBTQ individuals from employment discrimination and the Department of Education’s denial of transgender children’s rights.

On July 12, Booker again expressed his opposition to the transgender military ban, tweeting: “Grateful to my colleagues in the House for fighting for the rights of transgender servicemembers. The Trump Administration’s ban is insulting and frankly, un-American.”
