Reply To: What states are more accepting of LGBTQ+ and offer support?

DeeAnn Hopings

Having a sense of what protections are in place across the country is good information. However, like anything else, there are inconsistencies. There are states with a decided conservative bent, but there a clearly pockets of centrist to liberal political leanings and acceptance for LGBT people. The converse is also true.

Many tend to think of California as a very liberal state. However, it isn’t as liberal as you might think. In 2017, Lisa Middleton was elected to Palm Springs City Council. That made her the first transgender person to be elected in California to a non-judicial position. In 2021, due to the way we rotate council members for the appointing of mayors, she became the first openly transgender mayor in California. Some of the very conservative members of US Congress from California include: Jay Obernolte, Ken Calvert, Darryl Issa and Kevin McCarthy, to name a few. They are not in favor of banning assault weapons, pro-choice, marriage equality nor any support of trans people and trans youth.

As you can tell, there are Hits and Misses…
