Statement on Pro-Equality Changes at State & Federal Level

We are pleased to provide an update on several new and proposed changes to the law at both the state and the federal level, in support of LGBTQ+ people.

In Michigan, our pro-equality legislature and Governor Whitmer‘s Administration has worked on:

  • Passing the Michigan Family Protection Act, adjusting our surrogacy laws and making the creation of families more equitable.

  • HB 4718, which is headed to the Michigan Senate. If passed, this would repeal the “gay panic defense,” as fearing LGBTQ+ people is not a justification to commit a crime.

At the federal level, President Biden‘s Administration has:

  • Created new LGBTQ+ protections for youth in the education system, ensuring equitable access to bathrooms, school dances, and in writing their stories.

  • Restored healthcare protections for LGBTQ+ people that were previously reduced under the Trump administration. These new rules help to prevent discrimination against LGBTQ+ people in healthcare settings.

CFM applauds these developments and encourages leaders at both the state and federal level to continue fighting for LGBTQ+ people.
