Highlighting Candidates’ Records on LGBTQ Equality

As a resource to journalists, this website highlights the public statements of Republican candidates on key issues including: support for marriage equality, support for non-discrimination bills, opposition to dangerous conversion therapy, history of harmful rhetoric, and support for the right of LGBTQ Americans to adopt.


The second phase of the project will cover the positions of potential Democratic candidates on LGBTQ issues. As candidates evolve and expand their positions on LGBTQ issues, and as the field expands this research will be updated to take into account their most recent publicly available statements.
