Are you and your same-sex partner thinking about traveling or moving to another state but worried about whether your relationship will be respected? Or have you joined the growing movement to advocate that employers or organizations, when choosing sites for a convention or meeting, avoid locales that require or promote discrimination against same-sex relationships?

We've prepared this information so you can start your assessment. The next step would be to review other facts about a state, such as whether it has an anti-LGBT statute.
