This report reveals that LGBT discrimination within the workplace is wide-spread throughout America, and individuals and their families are suffering as a result of harassment and discrimination...
In addition, according to the statistics within the report, children raised by LGBT couples are about two times as likely to live within poverty conditions as children raised by heterosexual parents. These conditions are the result of their parents financial penalties. At the conclusion of the report, MAP and CAP document suggestions and implementations to decrease the discrimination and financial disparity for LGBT families and individuals.
"Imagine losing your job or you home simply because of who you are or whom you love!" says the director of LGBT Progress at CAP, Laura Durso. "These are just a couple of the added costs that are harming the economic security of LGBT people across the country."
