Rep. Scott Peters Celebrates San Diego Pride, LGBT Equality Victories

SAN DIEGO – Today, U.S. Congressman Scott Peters (CA-52) released the following statement on the LGBT Pride Festival celebration this weekend in San Diego:

“During Pride we join together to celebrate the wonderful diversity of the LGBT community and our victories in the fight for full equality. While there is work to be done, particularly around expanding  non-discrimination protections that we enjoy in California to the rest of the country and in supporting the transgender community, we should take time to reflect on the hard-fought victories of recent months and years. I’m looking forward, as I do every year, to seeing advocates and allies from across San Diego at Pride this weekend.”

Rep. Peters also recorded a video greeting by stopping by both The LGBT Center in San Diego and the United States Supreme Court, where just last month the Court ruled in favor of nationwide marriage equality. Watch the video HERE or click the image below.
