Culture, Warren: Mass. U.S. Senate candidate flashes pro-LGBT credentials

by Jeremy Hooper

Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate, Elizabeth Warren, vows to be a champion for equality:

I’m deeply proud to be from Massachusetts because the Commonwealth has been the nation’s leader in protecting and promoting equality – from marriage equality to the recently passed Transgender Equal Rights Bill. Congress and the President have also recently taken historic steps forward in promoting the cause of fairness and equality: the passage of the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hates Crimes Prevention Act and – after years of effort – the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”

We’ve made extraordinary progress, but there is still much to do.

Surely at least one TV movie could be mined out of a Senator (or President?) Warren's prominence, no?
