Advocates warn Senators: Gorsuch poses a ‘significant threat’ to our community

A coalition of LGBT groups have sent a letter to the U.S. Senate Judiciary committee ahead of next week’s confirmation hearings for President Trump’s nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court, Judge Neil Gorsuch, recommending they “interrogate” Judge Neil Gorsuch.

The federal judge’s track record, according to the letter from Lambda Legal and cosigned by the Transgender Law Center, Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund, and the Human Rights Campaign, as well as 15 other groups, leads the coalition to suspect he opposes same-sex marriage and transgender rights.

As BuzzFeed first reported, the groups are concerned how Gorsuch will rule in upcoming cases, such as whether the rights of transgender students and workers are protected under existing law, and if corporations will have a license to discriminate because of their faith-based opposition to same-sex marriage.
