Today, Lambda Legal filed a petition seeking a rehearing by the full U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit on behalf of Jameka Evans, a security guard who was harassed at work and effectively terminated from her job because she is a lesbian and doesn’t conform to gender norms in her appearance and demeanor.
The 2020 census won’t include questions about sexual orientation and gender identity. The harm to LGBTQ people from being erased is not just about numbers (although those are certainly important).
