Johnson has introduced several anti-LGBTQI+ bills at both the state and federal levels, including a state license to discriminate bill in Louisiana and a federal ‘Don’t Say LGBTQ+’ bill. • He has consistently voted against pro-LGBTQI+ bills, such as the Equality Act and Respect for Marriage Act, and for anti-equality bills, such as the federal trans and intersex sports ban.
