Zillow recently unveiled its LGBT Local Legal Protections, a data-powered resource to help people see whether for-sale and rental listings are in communities where state and local regulations explicitly protect individuals who identify as LGBTQ (i) individuals from discrimination.
After months of quarantine due to COVID-19 and weeks of protest against racialized oppression in this country, we received two wins from the Supreme Court of the United States that will be lifesaving for our communities.
No one saw this coming. The fight to protect LGBTQ individuals in the workplace seemed unwinnable, especially in this judicial era. But to everyone’s surprise, the U.S. Supreme Court declared discrimination based on sexual orientation and identity illegal on Monday, June 15.
On June 26, 2015, same-sex couples nationwide won the right to marry. LGBTQ citizens are still fighting for full equality — but as the second anniversary of this moment in history arrives, with it comes hope.
There was a time, in a white-dominated, male-regulated, tone-deaf, Protestant version of America, when “love” was patient and kind, not envious, boastful or proud. It did not dishonor others, self-seek. It was not easily angered and kept no record of wrongs.
