The state of Virginia has made a lot of headlines lately, often with measures that ensure a more equitable society for its citizens in the future.
Now focus turns to the state’s LGBTQ+ community, as the governor signs HB 2130.
The bill is sponsored by representative Alfonso H. Lopez, and establishes the Virginia LGBTQ+ Advisory Board as part of the executive branch of the state government.
The board will consist of 26 members, at least 15 of whom identify as LGBTQ+. The other five members will be Virginia’s Secretaries of the Commonwealth, Commerce and Trade, Education, Health and Human Resources, and Public Safety and Homeland Security, or individuals appointed by them.
