LGBTQ+ Community's Influence on Politics in Las Vegas, Nevada

The LGBTQ+ community has been making its presence felt in politics in Las Vegas, Nevada. Activists are urging voters to reject Republican Adam Laxalt due to his “career-long attack” against them. There is an increase in legislation across America which threatens recent advances made by LGBTQ+ people towards equality. Gender Justice Nevada, Human Rights Campaign Las Vegas, and another advocacy group joined forces to criticize Laxalt's record on issues affecting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people during a press conference at the LGBTQ+ Center in Las Vegas.

This came shortly after Laxalt appeared on a Breitbart podcast and praised a bill in Florida that bans education on sexual orientation and gender identity for young students. John Burke, Laxalt's campaign spokesman, echoed Laxalt's response to Breitbart in a statement. Sy Bernabei, executive director of Gender Justice Nevada, said that neither families nor children should have to hide who they are. Bernabei added that talking about gender identity isn't the same as talking about sex and that doing so only emboldens bullies and suggests that there's something wrong with being part of the LGBTQ community.

Legislators across the country have proposed a record 238 laws this year that would limit the rights of LGBTQ people, with roughly half of those bills aimed at transgender people. This has caused LGBTQ advocacy groups to speak out against this “growing national movement”. A poll commissioned last month by Club for Growth showed Laxalt as the Republican candidate in the race, potentially pitting him against Democratic senator Catherine Cortez Masto in the November general election. LGBTQ advocacy groups consider Cortez Masto an ally.

The Nevada State Charter School Authority board conducted interviews Friday and voted to submit three names to the governor. The party has banned candidates from participating in the month of February. Local leaders expect a debate of Republican presidential candidates to be scheduled before the Republican Party's primary, caucus, and Super Bowl LVIII. The visit to the Las Vegas Court of Justice, followed by an evening session at the North Las Vegas Court of Justice, was part of a judicial monitoring program launched Tuesday by the Nevada Housing Justice Alliance.

Former President Donald Trump has formally requested his candidacy for the presidential caucus to be held early next year, according to the Nevada Republican Party. A Nevada resident and the Parent-Child Coalition filed a lawsuit Thursday afternoon in the First Judicial District Court in Carson City. Tony Grady, a retired U. S.

Lieutenant Colonel from Nevada believes his extensive career separates him from a crowded field of 2024 Republican primary candidates. Vice President Kamala Harris will visit the College of Southern Nevada on Thursday as part of a month-long university tour. The diversity of geographical location, political ideology, and metropolitan status exhibited in localities that have implemented such reforms at the executive level demonstrates the growing consensus on this issue and the importance of all localities providing all members of their community with fair employment opportunities. The Title IX coordinator of the Matanuska-Susitna Municipal School District in Alaska and the school performance office of the Washoe County School District in Nevada created inclusive policies for transgender people for gender-segregated schools.

In addition to extensive LGBTQ inclusion statements, mayors can designate their cities as welcoming communities for LGBTQ immigrants and refugees. Wade called efforts to punish parents hypocritical, especially when in Florida Republicans who support the “Don't Say Gay” bill have pushed for legislation in the name of “parental rights”. A survey on transgender people revealed that most respondents reported avoiding going to bathrooms at work, school or public places to avoid confrontation or other problems. Differences in state laws that authorize the establishment of political subdivisions have resulted in numerous government structures being created.

Monday's press conference focused on recent quotes from Laxalt in support of a Florida law considered as “Don't Say Gay” bill which prohibits discussing gender identity and sexual orientation in classrooms from kindergarten to third grade. While legislation allows debates to be “age-appropriate” in higher grades, its vague language has raised concerns that it may prevent meaningful debates from taking place in classrooms and harm LGBTQ youth by intensifying stigmas.
