The LGBTQ history law came into force in Illinois on July 1st, 2020!
I was referring recently to the decision of the Supreme Court of the United States, which opposed discrimination against LGBTQ workers and, conversely, the Trump administration that took a stand against the LGBTQ community by removing the protections so far benefited under the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
But what about the American’s position on discrimination against LGBTQ people? A poll by KFF answers that question.
The Trump Administration has announced that the protections against discrimination that LGBTQ+ people have so far benefited under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) would be abandoned.
In recent years, there have been many cases of LGBTQ people being dismissed. I’ve shared the cases of lesbians who have been fired after getting married on several occasions.
In Michigan, the initiative to protect LGBTQ people from discrimination was in jeopardy, victim of the coronavirus.
Last month, in Florida, Jacksonville City Council wanted to protect the LGBTQ community from discrimination but went a little too fast.
A few years ago, teachers in Maryland were afraid to include LGBTQ references in sex education courses because they could face lawsuits.
But they and high school administrators in Montgomery County have found that a significant number of LGBTQ students feel non-existent and unrepresented in their schools, and this can lead to negative effects, not to mention incidents of hate and bias.
There are days when we are entitled to wonder if they understand what this means to us?
Fair and Equal Michigan is trying to gather the signatures and send the initiative that would add protections for LGBTQ people in the state’s Elliott Larsen Civil Rights Act on the November ballot, and that’s quite a challenge!
257,400 LGBTQ adults live in the state of Virginia and until now, they have had no protection from discrimination as the law only protects on the basis of race, religion, and sex.
