Voting Begins in New Hampshire in 2016 Primaries

by Hayley Miller February 09, 2016

Today, voters across the Granite State will head to the polls to vote in the nation’s first primary this election season.

HRC staff and volunteers have been on the ground for weeks, getting out of the vote for Hillary Clinton.

HRC endorsed Clinton last month at rally in Des Moines, Iowa.

While our volunteers have been knocking on doors and phone banking, they’ve met several LGBT leaders and allies, including former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards, former Houston Mayor Annise Parker, Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, Michelle Kwan and Chelsea Clinton. Hillary Clinton joined HRC’s volunteers to thank them for their hard work and dedication.

As a candidate, Hillary Clinton has made LGBT equality a pillar of her campaign, and unveiled a robust, ambitious and detailed plan for making progress on equality as president.  She has vowed to fight for the Equality Act -- a bill that would finally offer explicit, clear, and permanent non-discrimination protections for LGBT people at the federal level -- and her LGBT policy platform specifically calls for dropping the ban on open transgender military service, banning dangerous “conversion therapy” for minors, ending the epidemic of transgender violence, and supporting HIV prevention and affordable treatment, among other proposals that would advance equality and support the LGBT community.

There is so much at stake for the LGBT community in the 2016 presidential election. Over the last seven years under President Obama’s leadership, the nation has made substantial progress on LGBT equality. Despite the fact that a majority of Republican and Independent voters today support federal protections for LGBT Americans, the leading Republican candidates for president have threatened to halt progress as well as revoke, repeal, and overturn the gains made during President Obama’s two terms. The next president will have the power to reshape the Supreme Court, appoint top officials throughout the government, sign or veto non-discrimination legislation, and reshape foreign policy.

Joe Wasn’t Allowed To Talk About Sexy Stuff In The Jonas Brothers, So He’s Making Up For Lost Time

by Derek de Koff October 20, 2016

In his younger days as one-third of The Jonas Brothers, the DNCE frontman was barred from talking about sex and romance, for obvious reasons. “Hollywood Records were under Disney,” he tells NOTION, “and obviously just the age we were, we had to be careful with the certain things we wrote and said.” We couldn’t be [...]
