I didn't come out as gay until my late 20s. I feared that if I showed my true identity, I would be judged, rejected, or discriminated against.In bigger cities today like San Francisco and Los Angeles, the LGBTQ community has made progress and gained widespread acceptance.

However, in smaller towns and rural areas, we sometimes still face horrific discrimination. With new anti-LGBTQ bills being introduced in several states across the country, it's now more important than ever to elect leaders who will support and defend our community.This is one reason why I'm running for Congress, against Republican incumbent Jay Obernolte, in California's new 23rd District, which mostly covers San Bernardino County, including Victorville, Redlands, Twentynine Palms, Big Bear, and the Joshua Tree area.I want to create a more just and equal society for all.

I hope you'll consider joining me in this fight and heading to the polls this primary season to elect pro-LGBTQ candidates.Despite the fact that Americans' acceptance of LGBTQ people is at an all-time high, the Republican Party currently views our community as an appropriate target for their culture wars.
