Sad Fact – Most American States Still Discriminate Against LGBT People

1.03K 0

In 37 states plus Washington, D.C. – same-sex couples have the freedom to marry once and for all.

However, the majority of US states do not have nondiscrimination protections for LGBT people in the workplace, public accommodations, or housing. Which means you can be sacked for being gay, refused to rent a home, and discriminated against because of your sexuality.

Many schools across the country still lack enumerated policies that protect LGBT students from bullying and discrimination.

Some states go so far as to have “no promo homo” laws in place, which forbid teachers in public schools from even mentioning homosexuality, at least in a positive light.
