WDC Denounces Anti-LGBTQ Messages

STATEMENT – July 2, 2019

Since Pride Month began on June 1, Councilmember Evan Glass has received more than 300 communications with hateful sentiments about his role in promoting county-wide events celebrating the LGBTQ community.  The Montgomery County Women's Democratic Club (WDC) denounces these intimidation tactics aimed at Montgomery County's first openly gay council member. WDC recognizes the collective need to maintain vigilance of bullying tactics that target diversity in our community. WDC is proud to stand in solidarity with the LGBTQ community in both celebrating Pride Month and standing up for LGBTQ human rights every day of the year.

 WDC is one of the largest and most active Democratic Clubs in our County with more than 600 politically engaged women and men.
