Step up and do something when LGBT residents are victims of harassment

My partner and I have lived in one of the Lyon Communities for two years. Recently a neighbor started harassing, threatening and using homophobic slurs towards us. We reported the incidents to both the police and our management company and our management company said that they cannot even tell a tenant to not harass other tenants. Also they have told us that we need to find other ways to avoid him so the situation doesn't happen, or that if we are that uncomfortable with the situation we can move. We plan on moving in the next few weeks as soon as we find a place but we don't want other residents to have to deal with hateful language and harassment in their home.

      Earlier tonight we were delivered a notice from our management company that they had contacted our neighbor and he had denied any incidents and that although they knew the police were called, there was no true evidence so there was nothing that would be done for us.

      We were feeling angry, discouraged and overwhelmed with all of the extra money we seem to be trying to find due to having to pay deposits, etc. Then we checked our page. We saw that out of the 30 signatures, we only really know eight of you. The thought that 22 random people cared enough about us to sign our petition at least gave us a moment to be grateful for all of the good in the world again. So thank you all so much! We appreciate your support and sharing our story.

      It's never okay to bully someone and they need some support.

      Love you Diana! Happy times are ahead of you, but I strongly agree that the hate needs to stop.

      I believe threatening and intimidating behavior is absolutely abhorrent, and no one should be made to feel uncomfortable anywhere, especially not their home!

      This is not right. Nobody should be allowed to be harassed in their own home.

      What the management company is not required to provide a safe living environment!
