On November 1, 2019, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued a new rule allowing discrimination in all HHS programs against LGBTQ people and those who don’t share a provider’s religious beliefs.


Every Child Deserves a Family Act

The Every Child Deserves a Family Act will outlaw discrimination in adoption and foster care against LGBTQ parents and children, and open up more loving homes urgently needed by America’s foster children.

Contact your members of Congress and ask them to cosponsor the Every Child Deserves a Family Act!

The simplest, best way to support our fight for equality is to VOTE—for issues affecting our community and for candidates who have pledged to support our community.

But LGBTQ+ Americans are registered to vote a lower rate than our non-LGBTQ+ counterparts. Make your voice heard by checking and updating your voter registration below.

Equality Act

LGBTQ people still lack comprehensive, explicit nondiscrimination protections. The Equality Act would explicitly prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. It would be the first law to ensure LGBTQ people are covered by consistent, explicit, and nationwide nondiscrimination protections in employment, housing, access to public spaces and services, and other critical areas of daily life.
