While the LGBT community is making progress on many fronts – including a potential victory in the Supreme Court any day now – LGBT people living outside of progressive communities face a far different reality than many of us here in California. While same-sex marriage is now legal in every state, in 29 of those states, LGBT have no protections against discrimination in employment or housing, and their families are often not protected under the law.

So, how bad is it? With the help of two national experts, we’ll take a look at places where LGBT rights and equality generally lag, and how we can help advance equality across the country. We hope you will join us.
