Because I do not like the fact that people who share my sexual preferences are being discriminated against at the workplace over something that petty and insignificant.

To whom this may concern,

I have been trying to reach out to our President Barack Obama since January 2014 and had no success. I read the local news and see that he will be visiting Wilmington, DE this Thursday, July 17, 2014 with regards to I-495. I understand that he is only coming to visit Delaware for this one cause, however I’m sure if him and his officials of the White House was aware of the discrimination actions that are going on here in Delaware he would be eager to learn more about. My story is one of many that have been sweep under the rug and President Obama wouldn’t mind assisting me to stop this discrimination. President Obama needs to be full aware of what is going on within UPS Supply Chain Solutions, Newark, DE. As I am a honest witness of sexual orientation discrimination since September 2009. I recently seen online that our President signed the Executive Order adding LGBT Protections to Millions of Jobs, this case definitely falls within this topic. I was a temporary employee working through Kellys Services at the world wide company known UPS, Supply Chain Solutions and was terminated based of false allegations. UPS first reported to Kellys Services that I was terminated because I was late on 9/11/2009, when in fact the true reason of my termination was because I was gay. I received this true statement from a fellow coworker via text message a few months after I had filed my discrimination charge against them. I has also heard the same rumors prior to filing the discrimination charge that is what triggered me to contact Department of Labor/EEOC. After I received my right to sue letter from EEOC UPS changed their false allegations to state that I was not an employee of theirs. I have been overwhelmed with this entire situation ranging from depression, anxiety and not to mention suicidal. I am willing to speak out about this company and would like to share more information regarding this case. My case is pending within the US Supreme Court, however I was notified last week that my case will be closed all because I submitted my petition in the wrong format.

I am begging and requesting that someone from only your organization to follow up with me so I can share this devastating story with the world.
Why is this important to you? (Optional)

I am gay as well and I know how it feel to be different and how that some time can affect the views on others at work or even at school...

The beliefs of a crazy few should not be able to infringe upon the rights of many.

It bothers me that I am allowed to marry a man, but not a woman in all states simply because others find it disgusting. I find ketchup disgusting, but you don't see me trying to get it banned. Other people like ketchup and I'm not about to take that love of theirs from them. The same goes for people, if you truely love someone, it shouldn't be so that they are only allowed to marry (or be recognized as married) in certain parts of the USA. Freedom, we should have it by now, huh.
