Honoring Our LGBTQ+ Veterans

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
November 11, 2019
FLORIDA LGBTQ+ DEMOCRATIC CAUCUS ASKS FLORIDIANS TO HONOR OUR LGBTQ VETERANS
Stephen Gaskill, president of the Florida LGBTQ+ Democratic Caucus, issued the following statement on Veterans Day:
“As we honor those who served our country, we must pay special thanks to our LGBTQ veterans who served with distinction, and often under circumstances that could have ended their careers. We must ensure visibility and recognition for our LGBTQ veterans.
“Sadly, we do this at a time when the Trump administration is methodically trying to erase our transgender service members. Those who choose to serve in the military do so to fight for the American ideals of freedom and equality not only around the world, but also here at home. Thank you for your service, and know that the American people will always stand for equality.”
