Here is some news about the Fair and Equal Michigan campaign that we have been following since the beginning of the year and that tries to amend the state's Civil Rights Law to protect LGBTQ people from discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
In 2018 the Michigan Department of Civil Rights reported 44 cases of discrimination against LGBTQ+ individuals.
However, the Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act introduced in the state in 1976 doesn’t protect LGBTQ people. The listed categories that are protected from discrimination are religion, race, color, national origin, age, sex, height, weight, family status, and marital status.
Therefore, as you can see, there is no protection based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
