Know the laws in your state that protect LGBT people and people living with HIV.

All year long, Lambda Legal wins legal victories for LGBT people and people with HIV who seek full and equal rights—on the job, as parents and couples, in health care, school, our communities and in all aspects of our lives.

Below are case summaries for our recent legal victories.

Lambda Legal clients Juliet Evancho, Elissa Ridenour and A.S. are transgender students in the Pine-Richland School District in suburban Pittsburgh. Until the beginning of their senior year, their school allowed them to use the restrooms that matched their gender identity. They did so for years and without incident.
Lambda Legal filed a federal discrimination lawsuit against a Boulder County property owner who violated the federal Fair Housing Act and the Colorado Anti-Discrimination Act by refusing to rent a housing unit she owns in Gold Hill, Colorado, to a same-sex couple, one of whom is transgender, and their children because she worried their “uniqueness” would jeopardize her standing in the community.
Case in which a Florida trial court entered an injunction prohibiting a non-biological mom, now separated from her former same-sex spouse, from seeing or contacting the couple’s daughter.
Lambda Legal filed a friend-of-the-court brief on behalf of nine national HIV advocacy organizations in King v. Burwell, the latest challenge to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA). The brief focuses on the disparate impact that an adverse decision will have on people of color living with HIV in the states that have elected not to run their own health insurance exchange.
Lambda Legal, in partnership with South Carolina Equality, filed a federal lawsuit in the United States District Court of South Carolina arguing that South Carolina is obligated to allow same-sex couples to marry.
Lambda Legal has joined a lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Puerto Rico seeking the freedom to marry for same-sex couples in Puerto Rico and to compel Puerto Rico to recognize the legal marriages of same-sex couples entered into in other jurisdictions.
The landmark case that helped bring equal marriage nationwide.
Federal case seeking the freedom to marry in Indiana and recognition of legal out-of-state marriages of same-sex couples.
Lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona arguing that Arizona’s ban on marriage for same-sex couples violates the Equal Protection Clause and the Due Process Clause of the U.S. Constitution
Case representing low-income Louisianans living with HIV who are at risk of losing their health insurance because Louisiana insurance companies are refusing to accept federally funded premium subsidies.
Amicus brief to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit urging that heightened scrutiny be applied to discrimination based upon sexual orientation.
