Members of the LGBT Community say: "Donald Trump is Not Who We Are"

As a member of the LGBT community, I invite all members to stand together against the racial, religious and other intolerance that Donald Trump’s policies and rhetoric promotes. It is putting our Latino, Muslim-American, those with disabilities, and other community members directly at risk.

There is no place for this kind of discrimination in the LGBT community or in America.

As a community, we affirm the values that make us who we are: diversity, openness and compassion.

Join me in saying: Donald Trump is not who America is, and he is not who LGBT is.

Why is this important?

This is important as a member of the LGBT community, to see basic civil rights that we've worked so hard to achieve be upheld. It's important because the safety and civil rights of not only the LGBT community but of all minority communities are at risk under Mr Trump. Mr Trump is not who we are.
