Senate GOP blasted by gay lawmaker for tabling Pride Month resolution
The resolution is non-binding and would not change any government policy or the state’s civil rights law
The Republican-led state Senate stalled action today on a resolution to recognize June as “LGBTQ Pride Month” this year in Michigan.
The Senate’s only openly gay member, Democrat Jeremy Moss, blasted the foot-dragging as an insult to LGBTQ Michiganders, including legislative staffers working for both parties.
“…no matter the progress, no matter the growing support, the Republican leadership will never stand for LGBTQ equality.”
The resolution is non-binding and would not change any government policy or the state’s civil rights law, which does explicitly mention LGBTQ rights. It was also co-sponsored by three Republicans, one of whom said it’s only a matter of time before a GOP majority is on board.
