Politics

In Politics, The Advocate presents the latest news about the political world. From Supreme Court rulings to state and federal laws, we report on how politics shapes the day-to-day realities faced by members of the gay community. 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.

In November, voters will have the opportunity to choose between a vetted and vocally pro-LGBT candidate and an ethically insolvent, chaotic carnival barker.
