Support PA HB & SB300: End Anti LGBT Discrimination

    1. Petition by

      Marriage Equality for Pennsylvania

Now that marriage equality is legal, we ask your support on this important petition. We stand with you in support of Pennsylvania House Bill 300 and Senate Bill 300. The people of Pennsylvania demand to be treated equally in terms of employment, education, and housing regardless of sexual or gender identity. The lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community should not be relegated to second class citizenry solely because of who we love or how we portray ourselves. Equality for all means that we no longer need fear being fired from our jobs because we are gay. It means that we no longer need worry about being rejected for an apartment or other housing rental or purchase solely because we are gay. We are worthy of equal treatment as are all Pennsylvanians.

    2. Keystone Online provides greater depth as to why we need this.

      Although some jurisdictions in Pennsylvania provide protection from anti-gay discrimination, most of the state has no such laws or ordinances. We need a clear and statewide approach that prohibits discrimination at home, work and school. In all public accommodations, we demand equality.

      I am a woman married to a woman and have experienced discrimination by a local bridal shop. Discrimination is humiliating and is unacceptable in 2014.

      My husband's cousin is gay and has been with her partner for longer than many marriages that we know. It's important that they are able to share in the benefits of other "traditional" marriages.
