OutBuro - LGBT Workers in over half of the United States lack full protection - Employer Company Reviews Directory GLBT Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Queer Professional Community Job Portal Board

While progress has been made, there are too many lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, bisexual and queer individuals who still worry that being fully who they are at work will have adverse consequences.  Protections are based on where one lives.  This is sad as many love their home states and cities and may not be able to move to more hospitable locations due to family requirements or other reasons.  Why should someone have to move simply to be treated with dignity and respect?

Without federal and uniform state-level nondiscrimination laws across the land, many LGBT working force and professionals believe they have to hide who they are at work else they may jeopardize the ability to earn a living.
