LGBT Equality

We have come a long way towards LGBT equality in just the past decade. Marriage equality is now the law of the land in our country, and a number of states (including Delaware) have taken the lead in working to end discrimination against members of the LGBT community.

However, there is more work that needs to be done. We must strive to end discrimination in all forms. More needs to be done to end bullying and reduce teen suicides, especially among LGBT youth. We must reduce the disproportionate rate of violence against members of the LGBT community, especially transgender women of color.  Discriminatory standards for blood-donor eligibility should be ended. 

In 2017, Bryan was the prime sponsor of a bill to bring Delaware in line with the federal HOPE Act, which lifted the prohibition on recovering organs from HIV-positive donors for transplant into HIV-positive recipients enrolled in clinical research trials. He also supported legislation to ban conversion therapy in Delaware.
