Protections for LGBTQ victims

June 12, 2019

This year Connecticut made progress empowering our LBGTQ community, by passing legislation banning the "gay panic defense" in court and providing additional protections for LGBTQ victims of hate crimes.

I hope you will join me on Saturday, June 15th, in celebrating the lives and contributions of our LGBTQ residents at the inaugural Middletown Pride event. The parade kicks off at 2PM.
