Jill Stein on LGBT Issues

Stein is a big supporter of equal marriage, LGBT rights and was the first Massachusetts gubernatorial candidate to openly support equal marriage back in 2002.

JIM MORRISON: As an LGBT voter tell me why I or any other LGBT voter should be voting green.

JILL STEIN: We are right now on a trajectory towards disaster. And unfortunately we have been accelerating towards disaster. It’s not just that we are not moving forward, in most ways we’ve actually been moving backwards. Now I would say that progress on equal marriage is one exception to that. In which there is real progress that you can point to for the past decade. And I’m proud to have been a part of that in Massachusetts, which was the first state to actually recognize equal marriage. I was the first gubernatorial candidate to come out and push the envelope and support equal marriage back in 2002 when the other candidates were debating whether they would even support civil unions.

So we have made progress and we make progress by standing up for what we deserve rather than compromising, for example with civil unions rather than equal marriage. Or say drawing the line at equal marriage rather than full economic rights for the LGBT community which the president refused to sign. He refused to sign that executive order. So the LGBT community is being asked to really compromise and to settle for marriage rights but not economic rights at a time when the economy is devastating and devastating to people in the LGBT community.
