Make LGBT discrimination illegal in Georgia

It’s beyond time to protect gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Georgians from discrimination.

“Georgia Legislators: It’s the 21st Century -- beyond time to add explicit sexual-orientation and gender-identity nondiscrimination protections into Georgia’s statutes. We urge you to support equality, inclusion and fairness by protecting ALL Georgians with clear LGBT nondiscrimination protections in employment, housing, public accommodations, and other important areas of life.”

    In Georgia, it is still completely legal for an employer to fire a worker just for being gay or transgender. It is still completely legal for a landlord to deny someone a lease just for being gay or transgender. Or to deny someone a hotel room for being gay or transgender.

    It’s difficult to believe that such blatant discrimination would be protected by state law in 2015, but it’s true.

    While many Georgia cities, counties and businesses have adopted explicit sexual-orientation and gender-identity nondiscrimination protections, there is still no state law in place that protects members of the LGBT community.

    States that have adopted clear LGBT nondiscrimination protections in employment, housing, public accommodations, and other important areas of life are thriving.

    But Georgia is being left behind.

    Tell our legislators that it is beyond time to add explicit sexual-orientation and gender-identity nondiscrimination protections into Georgia’s statutes.
