Some Washington State delegates supporting Bernie Sanders at the Democratic National Convention still can’t find enough to get excited about Hillary Clinton. But they’ve found one issue around which they can unite. The Democratic nominee, they feel, trumps Donald Trump when it comes to support of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights.
Singing protesters confronted the ultra-conservative Westboro Baptist Church on Tuesday with a message of love outside Philadelphia’s Mazzoni Center, a lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community health center. More LGBT voices were heard throughout the Democratic National Convention. Equality Pennsylvania, a progressive LGBT statewide advocacy group, held an event downtown Tuesday.
