Candidates for LGBT

The American people have continually used the Presidential campaign sector as a concrete venue to voice their concerns. For citizens brave enough to do that, they are often met with support from Presidential candidates who are willing to do what they have to do to gain a large margin of votes. BuzzFeed News reached out to the LGBT community to find out what they want from the presidential hopefuls. In recent years, the LGBT community has been neglected and often silenced. Fortunately for them, with the assistance of Allies who want to support the community, LGBT members are finally being called on to voice their opinions in the political realm. The majority of the parties running have made it apparent that LGBT issues are their issues too. So what does the LGBT community actually want? The four biggest factors for LGBT people are: conversion therapy, HPV vaccines for boys, spousal veto, and the recognition of sexual orientation on death certificates. All of the candidates have responded to these concerns in a pro-LGBT manner. They are against conversion therapy, they believe all citizens should be protected from HPV, spousal vetoes need to be dealt with immediately, and the proper data needs to be collected for LGBT people upon death. Much of the community has rejoiced with this knowledge but there are some who are not pleased. They raise some concern when they wonder if these elected officials will actively keep the promises that they are making. MarketWired says that for the sake of the LGBT community, hopefully these candidates can keep their promises and keep the established trust between themselves and LGBT people and allies such as Paul Mathieson.
