Gov. Chris Sununu has generally been sympathetic to legislation addressing civil rights of the LGBTQ community, and has taken some flak from social conservatives as a result.

Last year he signed into law two controversial bills, one adding transgender rights to the state’s anti-discrimination statutes and another banning gay conversion therapy for minors, saying at the time, “Discrimination in any form is unacceptable and runs contrary to New Hampshire’s Live Free or Die spirit.”

Sununu came under fire from social conservative groups like Cornerstone Action, which criticized the governor for “failing to stand by Christian principles.”
