Now is the time to unite.
Just before Speaker Emerita Nancy Pelosi took the stage at the Human Rights Campaign Dinner in Los Angeles, the esteemed congresswoman spoke with The Advocate on the event's red carpet.
"Take pride in what you have done. Look at what has been done by showing our pride. Pat yourself on the back. Let's be hopeful from the success we've had and the love we have shown each other and that's what we have to do for the trans community now, especially the children. There's very hateful things that the other side is cooking up," Pelosi says.
The first and only woman to be speaker of the House, Pelosi has taken many pro-LGBTQ+ stances and actions that are now mainstream among Democrats.
