Colorado conservatives take steps toward LGBTQ equality
Updated: Apr 25, 2020
As the committee hearing that began early Thursday afternoon dragged on into the early morning hours of Valentine’s Day, six bills aimed at the LGBTQ community died before the sun rose on the day traditionally dedicated to celebrating love.
While my initial reaction to these bills represented a subdued dismay over continued Republican efforts to attack the LGBTQ community, my spirits lifted substantially as I saw some of the reaction from conservatives I have known and admired for years.
Though still a minority among the public comments of the GOP, that opposition demonstrates how the seeds of inclusiveness sown by organizations like One Colorado have begun to sprout and grow.
