Yesterday, I testified in support of a measure to protect Hawai‘i’s LGBTQ community from damaging and discredited efforts to change their sexual orientation or gender identity through so-called 'conversion therapy.'
I am proud of my record fighting for the rights – and the dignity – Hawai‘i's LGBTQ community deserves. As Attorney General, I defended the Hawai‘i Marriage Equality Act in the Hawai‘i Supreme Court. I took on the Trump Administration to defend the right of transgender individuals to serve this country in uniform. And I led a coalition of 20 states to advocate for the rights of LGBTQ couples in the U.S. Supreme Court Case, Masterpiece Cake Shop, Ltd. v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission.
