The Senate's confirmation of Matthew Kacsmaryk – during Pride month, no less – is beyond offensive.

: UTTERLY SHAMEFUL. Today, the Senate confirmed Matthew Kacsmaryk, an anti- zealot with a long record of attacking the civil rights of queer and trans people, awarding him a LIFETIME appointment as a federal judge in Texas.

Let this headline sink in. // Judge who said being transgender is a ‘delusion’ nearing confirmation

NOW: The Senate is casting its final vote on Matthew Kacsmaryk's nomination. Confirming Kacsmaryk will put the lives and rights of millions of people at risk. Kacsmaryk should NOT be confirmed.

Maintaining the collection of SOGIE information for youth, parents, & guardians in the CW system will encourage training to ensure that youth are affirmed and that same-sex couples are respected when seeking to foster. This will promote the best interests of youth in care.

Sadly, fear of discrimination discourages many parents from contacting foster & adoption agencies. The experiences of our plaintiffs, Eden & Brandy and Fatma & Bryn, turned away when seeking to foster children, shows these fears are well-founded.

Same-sex couples 7x more likely to raise foster & adoptive kids. Data on sexual orientation & gender identity & expression of foster & adoptive parents and guardians is also critical. families remain an underutilized resource for youth who need foster & adoptive families.

youth are SIGNIFICANTLY overrepresented in the child welfare system, where they are more than 2x as likely as cis/het youth to report being treated poorly. Collecting information on the identities of child-welfare-involved youth is essential to their well-being.

This proposed rule is yet ANOTHER example of the Trump administration's continued efforts to erase the community. Lambda Legal remains vigilant and will keep fighting these attempts at every turn.

"[H]ere is a list of black advocates who, facing oppression from both the black community and white society, lived by the idea that we aren't truly free until all of us are."

.: Matthew Kacsmaryk "has demonstrated a hostility to the LGBTQ community bordering on paranoia...This is a man who we're giving a lifetime appointment to the bench?" Sen. Schumer is right: Kacsmaryk doesn't belong on the federal bench.
