LGBTQ Community Gets Big Win with Supreme Court Vote This Week
I think it's important to acknowledge a massive move forward in the LGBTQ community and the state of Idaho. The Supreme Court voted to give gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people protection in the workplace.
Can you imagine going into work and being told to go home because of who you love? That's exactly just one of the fears the LGBTQ community has had to deal with until this week.
The Supreme Court approved to make a provision in the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The LGBTQ community will now be protected by the law. Nobody can tell someone to go home because they are gay or lesbian. No longer does the LGBTQ community have to hide their orientation in the place that helps them pay the bills.
I remember having this conversation years ago and couldn't believe it. Times are changing and the country is speaking out and standing up for equality. This is a big win for the LGBTQ community.
This is just one step in the right direction because the LGBTQ community can still be discriminated against in the housing community. So, the work continues but this is special for the community.
I'm just sorry it took so long. 🏳️🌈 Happy Pride Month!
