LOS ANGELES — Equality California, the nation’s largest statewide LGBTQ civil rights organization, and its Nevada-based affiliate Silver State Equality released the following statement from Executive Director Rick Zbur congratulating Mayor Pete Buttigieg on a strong performance in the Iowa Democratic Caucus:

“Tonight, Mayor Pete made history. His groundbreaking performance in Iowa sends a message to LGBTQ+ young people across the country — from Sioux City to San Francisco, Waterloo to Bakersfield — that their voices matter. Our country needs them. As Harvey Milk said on his own election night more than 40 years ago, ‘We’ve given them hope.’

“Equality California and Silver State Equality are proud to stand with the candidate who will fight for our LGBTQ+ community, unite our country and defeat Donald Trump in November. Congratulations to all of the organizers in Iowa who made tonight possible. Let’s go win the era!”
