Politics

In Politics, The Advocate presents the latest news about the political world.

Read about LGBT leaders like Brian Sims and Tammy Baldwin, and their work to advance the LGBT rights movement in the United States and around the world. Learn about legislation related to same-sex marriage, adoption, and other issues in gay politics that will impact the lives of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender Americans.
