Workplace Discrimination Workplace Discrimination

Workplace Discrimination

Despite the strides we have made in this country to try to ensure equal opportunities, equal treatment and equal pay for all, “all” doesn’t necessarily include someone who is gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender.

Hate Crimes Hate Crimes

Hate Crimes

Hate crimes can happen anywhere, at any time. In fact, in the U.S., one violent act of hate takes place almost every hour of every single day.

Marriage Marriage

Marriage

More than 8 million people in this country are denied the freedom to marry...just because they are gay. Many have been in committed, loving relationships with the same person for 10, 20, even 50 years.

Faith Faith

Faith

Many faiths espouse values such as commitment to social justice, love and acceptance. But unfortunately, some also use their doctrines and guidebooks to attack, condemn and discriminate against gay and transgender people.

Youth | School Youth | School

Youth | School

Hatred. Derision. Insults. Threats. Harassment. Assault. It’s estimated nearly 90% of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender youth have been verbally or physically harassed or assaulted at school.

Youth | Suicide Youth | Suicide

Youth | Suicide

Something has to be wrong, when 1 in 7 people who commit suicide is a child. And when suicide is the third leading cause of death for young people aged 10 to 24.

Youth | Homelessness Youth | Homelessness

Youth | Homelessness

Gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender youth make up an estimated 3% to 5% of the general U.S. population, but make up more than 20%—and possibly up to 40%—of the homeless youth population overall.

Family Acceptance Family Acceptance

Family Acceptance

For most of us, our families provide the one place where we can be ourselves and know that we will be loved and accepted, no matter what. Our families are our support system, our source of strength, our home.

Parenting Parenting

Parenting

Approximately 500,000 children in the U.S. are in foster care. And more than 120,000 children languish in the public child welfare system—all while responsible, nurturing adults are prevented from adopting them.

International International

International

In more than 70 countries, gay and transgender people may be arrested and jailed, or even killed, based on their sexual orientation or gender identity.

Health Care Health Care

Health Care

Our health is one of the most important things in life. But when it comes to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Americans, our nation’s health care system can involve little “health” and even less “care.”

Immigration Immigration

Immigration

Because our country’s immigration system does not allow gay Americans to sponsor their partners for U.S. residency, many couples are forced to split or consider drastic life changes, such as an international move.

Older Adults Older Adults

Older Adults

Older adults are already alienated in our society. But gay and transgender seniors face a multitude of unique issues, making them even more marginalized, isolated and vulnerable than their straight peers.

Military Military

Military

Sexual orientation has nothing to do with how well a service member performs his or her job. But under the 1993 “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” law, being openly gay can be cause for discharge from the military.
