Pueblo Dems Join Colorado Dems and Stonewall Dems to Stand Against Hate & Bigotry
On June 29th, on the second-to-last day of Pride Month, and the 54th anniversary of the second day of the Stonewall Riots, the Colorado GOP doubled down on their attacks on our LGBTQ community.
In Colorado, we stand against hate and bigotry. We've elected the nation's first openly gay Governor, have one of the largest and most diverse LGBTQ Caucuses in our State House, and continue to be one the top safest states for queer and trans Americans – barring, of course, the recent Club Q shooting.
The Pueblo Democratic Party joins the Stonewall Democrats of Colorado in rebuking GOP hatred. We also share its joint statement with the State Democratic Party in opposing the hate-fueled MAGA-right's dangerous messages by reiterating our Party's support for all queer and trans Coloradans.
View the complete joint statement here.
