On June 26, , the Supreme Court of the United States ruled bans on same-sex marriage to be unconstitutional in Obergefell v. Texas has a hate crime statute that strengthens penalties for certain crimes motivated by a victim's sexual orientation, although it has never been invoked. Gender identity is not included in the hate crime law.

He routinely includes gay issues in his public speeches on civil rights and forcefully advocates for legislation protecting persons based on sexual orientation.
