The US House of Representatives is introducing the bipartisan Equality Act, which would expand civil rights laws to include specific, national protections against discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation.
The US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) today confirmed that the Fair Housing Act protects people from discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation.
What if I told you, that one rule was the difference between thousands of people having housing or not? Pretty unbelievable, right? Well it could have been reality under the litany of attacks against trans people from the Trump administration.
NCTE today announced its support for criminal justice reform legislation in Virginia that would ban the so-called “panic” defense from being used to argue for lienancy in cases of hate crimes and violent crimes against LGBTQ people.
The Trump administration is trying to say discrimination against transgender people in health care is legal. While they can’t change the law, this new regulation would confuse patients, providers, and insurers, and make it much harder for many transgender people to access life-saving care.
President Trump has been the most anti-transgender president in American history.
The Equality Act passed one house of Congress with an overwhelming, bipartisan majority. Now, let's get this landmark LGBTQ non-discrimination and civil rights bill to the Senate floor.
