Equality Act needs to become law

Charleston Gazette-Mail • June 29, 2021, 11:43 am This year, the conversation around federal nondiscrimination protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans has reached an all-time fever pitch, with Republicans and Democrats alike bringing legislation to the table.

In West Virginia, and in many other states, LGBTQ people are left vulnerable to discrimination in a wide range of areas, from housing to public spaces to health care. And the fastest way to address this failing is to pass the Equality Act, federal legislation that would deliver clear, consistent protections for all LGBTQ people in every state.
