About me

Over the years I have donated time, money and resources, including pro-bono work, to several queer-friendly organizations such as District 202, OutFront Minnesota and the Minnesota Aids Project. I am proud to have lobbied against laws intended to undermine personal freedom and choice. I have consistently worked to increase the legal rights of people in families and in relationships who do not enjoy the benefits and protections of legal recognition. In 1993, I lobbied to help pass the amendment to the Minnesota Human Rights Act which added "sexual orientation" to the classes protected by the Act and I continue to work and fight against the routine efforts of hostile groups that seek to erode the protections afforded by the 1993 amendment.
