LGBT Rights

Add the Words

Colin believes all people should be treated with dignity and respect regardless of who they love or how they identify. This is why he supports adding the words, "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" to the Idaho Human Rights Act to protect the LGBT community from discrimination in employment, housing, and public accommodations.

Mental Healthcare

The likelihood of a mental health condition for a member of the LGBT community is three times as high than their heterosexual counterparts. Regrettably, rates of suicide and substance abuse are also higher. This is why substance abuse, suicide awareness, and mental health services are so crucial for our LGBT friends. I will advocate for increased public funding for these programs and block harmful attempts to defund them.

Decriminalization of HIV Status

Idaho currently criminalizes behaviors of individuals living with HIV, that are not known to transmit HIV. This includes biting and spitting, which can carry a 15 year prison sentence. Idaho needs to follow the lead of other states which have updated their criminal statutes to be based on science, and not in fear.
