Martin Walsh releases gay rights platform

Mayoral candidate Martin J. Walsh today released what he called a comprehensive platform to protect gays and lesbians, including designated “safe spaces” for gay youth in schools, transitional housing for homeless youth, and better training for police officers who handle domestic violence.

Walsh unveiled the policies at his Jamaica Plain field office, as he stood with several gay and lesbian supporters who said he was a crucial behind-the-scenes player in the fight to defend gay marriage in the state Legislature.
