We’ve known Kate Brown for decades. Governor Brown is a proud member of the LGBTQ community and she has been a fighter and champion for our community every day of her career.
We can trust that she will be there when the LGBTQ community needs an advocate in office.
From defending the rights of LGBTQ students in school to raising her voice in defense of Oregon’s Equality Act. We have Governor Brown’s back because she has ours.
On the other hand, Oregonians simply can’t trust her opponent, Republican Knute Buehler.
We are not fooled. Knute Buehler is running for Governor as an ally to the LGBTQ community—he even conveniently showed up to his FIRST Portland Pride parade this year.
We will not be erased. When Buehler was asked how he would curb bullying of LGBTQ youth in schools, he didn’t even use the term “LGBTQ” in his response.
We refuse to go back. When the Supreme Court reversed the ruling in the Masterpiece Cakeshop case, opening up the door for discrimination based on a customer’s sexual orientation, Knute Buehler was silent.
The choice is clear. We know our Governor and we know that she will not be bought or swayed by wealthy special interests.
