Democratic Party of Georgia Chairman Mike Berlon today released the following statement on the remarks of Rep. Rashad Taylor:
“Representative Rashad Taylor is a trusted lawmaker, a good son, and an excellent friend to Georgia. Today, he emphasized that he is a brave advocate as well.
“As citizens of the greatest country on Earth, we must remind ourselves that we still fall short of true equality for all. With Representative Taylor’s statements today, we find ourselves a step closer.
“Rashad’s words today add to his stature as a true leader. His journey is an extremely personal one, and I hope that all Georgians will show him the same kindness and support that he has shown his constituents during his tenure in the General Assembly.
“Coming out is never easy. It is an intensely personal decision. We stand with those that make this difficult choice, and we continue our strong support for the LGBT community and Rashad personally.”
