A few questions for Senators Obama and Biden

Q: Please tell the LGBT community where you stand on their concerns.

Senators Obama and Biden both have strong records of standing up for civil rights and equal opportunities for all Americans. An Obama-Biden Administration will expand hate crimes statutes, fight discrimination in the workplace, and bring an end to the misguided “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy. They will also support civil unions and federal rights for LGBT couples, and call for a repeal of the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act. Senators Obama and Biden have also opposed the divisive and discriminatory “Federal Marriage Amendment.”
