I'm proud to serve as the first openly-gay Senator & I encourage you to continue fighting for social justice for all #NationalComingOutDay
Tonight, I joined my Democratic colleagues on the Senate floor to stand up and say, enough is enough. We're filibustering because it's far past time for us to enact commonsense gun safety measures that could possibly prevent a tragedy like Orlando from happening again. We've suffered too much heartbreak and have lost too many innocent lives for us to continue doing nothing. #Enough.
Donald Trump says he will protect our LGBT citizens from the violence and oppression of a hateful foreign ideology. By foreign, do you mean Indiana? Or North Carolina? Or one of the other 30 states with laws similar to HB2? -TB
I remember being out during my first term in elective office. This was the first time I realized I did not have to choose between being honest about who I am and pursuing the career of my dreams. It was the most freeing moment of my life. I replaced my fear with courage and my anger with hope. I am proud to serve Wisconsin as the first openly-gay member ever elected to the Senate. I am proud of all the work our grassroots efforts have accomplished, but I also know there is so much more we need to do. Today, on National Coming Out Day, I encourage you to continue fighting for social justice. Our progress will continue and it is because of you. - STB
