Bob supports full equality and inclusion for all LGBTQ people, including marriage equality, access to affirming medical care, safe and affirming schools for LGBTQ youth, anti-violence initiatives, and protections against discrimination. Bob believes that people should be able to live their lives and love whomever they wish to love, without fear of attack, injury, or discrimination. Bob will continue to defend our statutes that affirm LGBTQ people, including the Illinois Human Rights Act, and will oppose efforts to establish a license to discriminate. Bob understands that it is more critical than ever before to advocate and be a visible ally supporting the LGBTQ community.
