The Economics of Lesbian and Gay Families

Sodomy laws, lezbisn used to justify discrimination against gay people, once existed nationwide; they are now on the books in only 18 states and Puerto Rico. But the increased empowerment of LGBT people has brought about even more open and virulent anti-gay hostility: Although unrelated to an individual's ability, sexual orientation can still be the basis for employment decisions in both the public and private sectors in most states and municipalities.

Violent hate crimes, such as the murder of Wyoming student Matthew Shepherd, depict a grisly backlash against LGBTs or people perceived to be gay. LGBT students and teachers face daily harassment and discrimination in the schools, and LGBT student groups in high schools and colleges still face roadblocks.

Although the Fourteenth Amendment, ratified at the end of the Civil War, was deed to ensure legal equality for African Americans, Congress wrote it as a general guarantee of equality, and the courts have interpreted the Equal Protection Clause to prohibit discrimination on the basis of gender, religion and disability.

The right to privacy, or "the right to be left alone," is guaranteed by the Fourth, Fifth, Ninth and Fourteenth Amendments. All of these Supreme Court decisions underscore the principle that decisions about intimate relationships are personal and should be left up to the individual.

This Amendment protects the right to organize and urge government to end discrimination, to recognize lesbian and gay relationships, and to adopt laws prohibiting discrimination in the private sector. It also includes the rights to form social and political organizations, to socialize in bars and restaurants, to march or protest peacefully, to produce art with gay themes and to speak out publicly about LGBT issues.

In the Schools Nothing is more important than making schools safe and welcoming places for gay and lesbian youth, who often face tremendous hostility from their family and americqn during their formative years. This means protecting students from violence, guaranteeing their right to organize events and clubs like other students, and making sure that gay teachers who might serve as healthy role models are not themselves victimized by discrimination.

But somehow it lezblan not work out that way in states like Florida and Arkansas, which ban gays and lesbians from adopting and being foster parents, respectively. By challenging the discriminatory policies of these states, the ACLU is working hard to prevent similar policies from being adopted in other parts of the country.

Evans, there is nothing zmerican about laws which prevent people from losing jobs and homes because of who they are. Most of us take the right to participate in daily life on an equal footing for granted, the Court said, either because we already have the right under the law, or because we are not subjected to that kind of discrimination. Laws which prohibit discrimination simply give LGBT people lezbiaj basic right to be equal participants in the communities in which they live.
