LGBT Rights

The struggle of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people for full equality is one of this generation’s most important and galvanizing civil rights movements. Despite the many advances that have been made, however, LGBT people continue to face discrimination in many areas of life.

No federal law prevents a person from being fired or refused a job on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. Although several local governments in Pennsylvania have local ordinances prohibiting employment discrimination against LGBT people, the majority of the state's population remains unprotected.
