US Supreme Court Affirms LGBTQ Rights


Employees Cannot Be Fired For Being Gay or Transgender, Supreme ...

Before June 15th, in 29 states you could be fired after announcing your marriage.    Last Friday, the Trump administration finalized a regulation permitting health providers to discriminate against LGBTQ patients.

On Monday, The Supreme Court decided by a 6-3 vote that a key provision of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 known as Title VII that bars job discrimination because of sex, among other reasons, encompasses bias against LGBT workers. In what could be called a stunning defeat for President Trump who hoped a conservative court might reverse gay marriage.

Trump Appointed Justice Neil Gorsuch wrote “An employer who fires an individual for being homosexual or transgender fires that person for traits or actions it would not have questioned in members of a different sex,”  “Sex plays a necessary and undistinguishable role in the decision, exactly what Title VII forbids.”

Moved to the Big Tomata in the nineties from San Francisco. No Suburbs for me with its single colored houses and lawns and the excitement of pulling out my trash can once a week. I'm a CityFella , a part time New Yorker. I'm happiest in the Center City where people the streets and people are alive. I'm still waiting to buy a 34th floor condo somewhere downtown/Midtown with a nightclub. "Hurry I'm old" My politics are somewhere in the middle with a needle that constantly moves. I'm too liberal to be a Republican and too conservative to be a Democrat. Everything interests me . I've come to love Sacratomato, Its a nice town in cheap sensible shoes .
