We are proud that our neighborhoods reflect the strength and diversity of the LGBTQIA+ family better than anywhere in the city. We must continue to lead the way for equality. Right now, we are seeing LGBTQIA+ youth, especially of color, experience higher than normal rates of homelessness, incarceration, depression and suicide. I also strongly support our GNC community and will extend support for high quality, gender affirming health care and access to safe spaces within our community. I will continue to work with our strong neighborhood partners to further provide programs and quality mental health care to those in need and continue to showcase the strengths of our Queer community.
LGBTQIA+ rights are human rights.
