Tulsi Gabbard is a politician from the United States, a member of the US Army Reserve, and a political commentator. She represented Hawaii’s 2nd congressional district from 2013 to 2021. Gabbard was both the first voting Samoan-American and the first Hindu member of Congress. Before abandoning the party and turning independent in October 2022, she ran for the Democratic nomination in the 2020 U.S. presidential election.
At the age of 21, Gabbard won a seat in the Hawaii House of Representatives in 2002. In Iraq from 2004 to 2005, Gabbard worked in a field medical unit of the Hawaii Army National Guard. From 2008 to 2009, she was stationed in Kuwait as an Army Military Police battalion leader.
On December 10, 2020, Gabbard and Republican U.S. Representative Markwayne Mullin introduced a bill titled the “Protect Women’s Sports Act” that would seek to define Title IX protections on the basis of an individual’s biological sex, making it a violation for institutions that receive federal funding to “permit a person whose biological sex at birth is male to participate in an athletic program or activity that is designated for women or girls.” If passed, this bill would effectively ban many transgender athletes from participating in programs corresponding with their gender identity. Gabbard received condemnation from LGBT organizations and activists after introducing the bill, including the Human Rights Campaign, saying: “Gabbard has lost all credibility as an ally.”
On April 4, 2022, Gabbard endorsed Florida’s Parental Rights Bill which forbids discussion of sexual orientation and gender identity in public school classrooms for kindergarten through third grade. Gabbard stated the bill “bans government and government schools from indoctrinating woke sexual values in our schools to a captive audience.” She also suggested the bill should apply to all grades.
