Q: I am a gay man who recently came out and am interested in volunteering in the movement. Lambda Legal has done a lot of work for LGBT people, including the fight for marriage equality. I know marriage was important, but not the whole battle, and wonder what’s next for the LGBT movement?
Puerto Rico Governor Alejandro García Padilla nominated Associate Justice Maite Oronoz Rodriguez as Chief Justice of the commonwealth’s highest court. She would be the first openly LGBT chief justice in the country.
Lambda Legal filed suit in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of North Carolina, Asheville Division, seeking compensation for Sandra Lively, a registered nurse at North Carolina hospital Park Ridge Health, for the thousands of dollars of expenses she incurred when the hospital refused to allow her to enroll her same-sex spouse in the employee health plan.
No employer gets to impose their sex stereotypes on their employees. And that protection does not stop at the restroom door. Access to appropriate restrooms is an essential element of all workplaces, and one most of us take for granted.
Tonight the Indiana Senate Rules and Legislative Procedure Committee advanced Senate Bill 344; it will now go to the Senate floor for a vote. Lambda Legal is calling on Indiana. LGBT people, allies, business leaders, athletes and advocates to re-engage in the fight against SB344, a bill that will damage LGBT Hoosiers.
