LGBT issues highlighted at DNC opening 
The LGBT community was referenced by many of the DNC’s opening speakers Monday night. 
“The Trump/Pence ticket is basically a contest to see who can discriminate more,” Connecticut Gov. Dannell Malloy said. Malloy referenced Indiana Gov. Mike Pence’s backing of the state’s so-called religious-freedom law. He added the NBA recently pulled its All-Star game from North Carolina because of a similar law, to a series of applause.
Convention CEO Leah Daughtry praised the diversity of the Democratic Party. 
“We the people … regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity,” Daughtry said to cheers. “No matter what you believe or who you love, we’re always stronger together.”
