“Two Americas for LGBT People”


HUFFINGTON POST

After the 2014 election we knew we would be losing ground for a couple of years. The crop of incoming conservatives featured many new, terrifyingly crazy anti-LGBT legislators.

We were right to be worried.

So far, we have seen states nullify all local non-discrimination ordinances protecting LGBT people. We’ve seen new bills granting special religious exemptions to ignore civil rights laws if they feel like it.

We even have three states with pending bills that would make it nearly impossible for transgender students and citizens to even use a public bathroom. Business owners who let transgender people would face fines and lawsuits. Individuals who turn in transgender students would receive $2000 bounties according to the latest bill in Texas.

Pause there for a second.  FULL POST

WASHINGTON -- The Obama administration thinks the Supreme Court should rule that state bans on same-sex marriage are unconstitutional, according to a brief filed by Justice Department lawyers on Friday. The amicus brief urges the Supreme Court to rule that such bans are "incompatible with the Constitution" because they "exclude a long-mistreated class of human beings from a legal and social status of tremendous import." The court will hear oral arguments in the case of Obergefell v. Hodges in April.
