Sen. Kamala Harris: LGBT Rights Under Attack By Justice Dept. That Stands ‘On The Side Of Discrimination’

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) condemned Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his Justice Department’s stance on LGBT issues during a speech Saturday night at the Human Rights Campaign National Dinner.

“We have been reminded racism in this country is real. Sexism, anti-Semitism are real in this country. Homophobia and transphobia are real in this country. And we must speak that truth so we can deal with it,” Harris said.

“LGBT rights are under attack,” she continued. “Under attack by a Justice Department that now stands on the side of discrimination instead of equality.”

Harris also slammed Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore for his view that homosexuality should be illegal and President Trump’s banning of transgender troops from the military.
