What Janet is most concerned about is earning the endorsement of the people of Maine on November

In 2005, I backed Maine’s landmark law to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. In 2009, shortly after being elected Maine’s first female Attorney General, I testified in favor of the historic marriage equality bill. I also joined other attorneys general across the country in federal lawsuits aimed at stopping discrimination against LGBTQ+ individuals in the Armed Forces and elsewhere. I am also the only candidate for governor endorsed by EqualityMaine – because I will stand up for LGBTQ+ Mainers. That’s why my Administration will:

  • Fully enforce our nondiscrimination laws and policies, making sure that all people are welcome here and that our state is a place of opportunity for everyone.
  • Protect LGBTQ+ youth from the discredit and harmful practice of “conversion therapy”
  • Support trans-inclusive care for transgender Mainers.
