In a few short weeks, the nation will be watching closely as the U.S. Senate begins its confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who has been tapped by President Trump as the replacement for Justice Anthony Kennedy. If confirmed to the highest court in the land, Kavanaugh would be tasked with immediately deciding what our Constitution means and how it will affect the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer Americans and their families.

A state Senate committee packed with a conservative Republican-majority voted unanimously on Wednesday to advance a bill that would stiffen penalties for those who harass Coloradans for being gay or disabled. Gay rights supporters reacted with a jolt after the vote. They had braced for yet another defeat in the infamously hardline State Affairs "kill" Committee. "In an unexpected turn of events, the bill I'm sponsoring with Sen. Don Coram and Rep. Mike Foote to add LGBT and disabled folks to the law protecting people from harassment passed unanimously out of the Senate 'kill' committee today!" Sen. Dominick Moreno, a Democrat from Commerce City and a member of the LGBT legislative caucus, wrote at his Facebook page.
