Pelosi’s district includes San Francisco, and she has been a longtime supporter of LGBTQ equality. For years, she has earned a score of 100 on HRC’s Legislative Scorecard. As Speaker of the House from 2007 to 2011, her support was key to passing LGBT legislation like the Matthew Shepard Act and the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.
