Twenty LGBTQ+ Leaders Support #Rheingans4Rep

I’m humbled by the outpouring of support our campaign has received from LGBTQ+ leaders across the 47th district and state. Many of the leaders listed below are mentors and colleagues from my decades of work in HIV and AIDS and other social justice spaces, and they know that their teaching and mentorship will be translated into policy action in Lansing. It is through their stories that I better understand the urgent need to amend Michigan’s Elliot-Larsen Civil Rights Act to include protections for Michigan’s LGBTQ+ residents in housing, education, employment, and public accommodations, which I will push for if elected to represent this new district.


I am the only candidate in my race with twenty LGBTQ+ leaders publicly supporting me, and I am looking forward to celebrating tomorrow at our Pride Month event. Reserve your ticket today - allies welcome!
