Warren: 'Marry one woman. Assuming you can find one'

Warren: 'Marry one woman. Assuming you can find one'

CNN capitalized on the spectacle by hosting an "LGBTQ Town Hall" Thursday evening, giving nine candidates about 30 minutes each to answer questions.

Cox asked the MA senator how she would respond if a supporter approached her on the campaign trail and said: "I'm old-fashioned and my faith teaches me that marriage is between one man and one woman".

She added, after some applause from the Los Angeles crowd: "Assuming you can find one".

The Human Rights Campaign Foundation co-hosted the town hall.

During the town hall, the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates were asked questions exclusively about lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer issues.


Warren, who has surged in the polls, released a new plan where she vowed to use "every legal tool" to ensure equal LGBT rights. Warren, who perhaps more than any other candidate seems to be genuinely having a great time on the campaign trail, is often fearless in her responses. "I think this is just a failure to understand how much trans and non-binary people struggle to have our authentic pronouns taken seriously", tweeted Charlotte Clymer, who does communications for the Human Rights Campaign.

"Thank you guys", Harris said to the crowd.

She said the "hatefulness... especially for people of faith" always shocked her. "That is the basis of the faith that I grew up in". They are precious in his sight. "And it is truly about the preciousness of each and every life".

Warren said growing up she knew there were a lot of different people in the world, and she knows that in those days there weren't many people who were "out".

Buttigieg is the first openly gay person to make a serious bid for the presidency.
