Representative Coleman is a fierce supporter of LGBT rights. He is proud to represent the neighborhood of Montrose, a traditionally gay Houston neighborhood. He believes in equality for all; discrimination in any form is unacceptable. No one should be unable to get married, raise a child, or serve their country on account of their sexual orientation. In recognition of his passionate support of LGBT causes, Legislative Queery gave Representative Coleman the highest grade for watching out for the best interest of the gay community. They wrote that "it's no surprise that [Representative Coleman] voted in the best interests of the queer community for all nine of the record votes considered in these rankings [w]hat put him over the top was authoring seven pro-LGBT bills or amendments this session ."
