SALEM, Ore. – Governor Kate Brown is signing an executive order Friday that will strengthen statewide protections for LGBTQ equality.

The executive order will be signed in Portland and it is not the first executive order recognizing LGBTQ equality in Oregon.

The first executive order designed to recognize LGBTQ equality in Oregon was signed in 1987.

In a statement Brown said:

“Progress matters, and recognition matters. The long-standing executive order needed to be updated to reflect current law and understandings about sexual orientation and gender identity. There are more sexual orientations than just gay and lesbian. And there are more than two gender identities. Recognizing everyone is one step closer to a more inclusive and welcoming Oregon.”
