This year's Democratic platform is being called the most LGBT-inclusive in the party's 188-year history.

The 56-page document weaves references to LGBT rights throughout. One plank, titled Guaranteeing Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Rights, is specific in its inclusion.

According to the Washington Blade the document “endorses LGBT comprehensive non-discrimination legislation (although it doesn't explicitly address the Equality Act by name), condemns violence against transgender people, endorses the U.S. Supreme Court decision in favor of same-sex marriage and repudiates state laws seeking to undermine LGBT rights.”

“But there is still much work to be done,” the platform states. “LGBT kids continue to be bullied at school, restaurants can refuse to serve transgender people, and same-sex couples are at risk of being evicted from their homes. That is unacceptable and must change.”

The platform, ratified Monday by delegates gathering in Philadelphia, stands in contrast to what Republicans ratified last week at their convention in Cleveland. The GOP platform calls for the undermining or reversal of the Supreme Court's 2015 ruling that led to nationwide marriage equality and supports so-called conversion therapy to minors and state laws that restrict transgender bathroom use.
