LGBTQ Equality


Recognizing that all people deserve the right to fully participate in the social, civic, and economic life of our communities, Senator Maggie Hassan has long fought to advance the rights of LGBTQ Granite Staters. 

During her time in the New Hampshire State Senate, Senator Hassan led efforts to make New Hampshire one of the first states in the nation to pass marriage equality. As Governor, she issued an executive order prohibiting discrimination in state government hiring and contracting on the basis of gender identity or gender expression. 

Senator Hassan is continuing to fight for progress and advancing the rights of LGBTQ Granite Staters and all Americans. She supports the Equality Act, which would provide federal non-discrimination protections for LGBTQ Americans, she is working to crack down on the dangerous and fraudulent practice of “conversion therapy,” and she will stand firm against any attempt to undermine marriage equality or roll back LGBTQ rights.
