Of course the LGTBQ community needs legal protection! Each and every one of us knows someone personally or professionally who is LGTBQ. This includes you, Congressman Knight! Please put humanity before party. I would like to think we live in a day and age where legal protection is not required for people who are born a certain way but, unfortunately, we don't. We must be there to support our LGTBQ neighbors, friends, colleagues and family.
