The Movement Advancement Project just released its newest report: An Ally’s Guide to Issues Facing LGBT Americans, written in partnership with the Human Rights Campaign, Log Cabin Republicans, National Stonewall Democrats, and the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund and Institute.

This new guide is a short primer summarizing the major areas in which unfair laws and stigma create extra burdens for LGBT people. These burdens make it harder for LGBT Americans to earn a living, take care of their families, or even go about everyday activities like eating at a restaurant with their families or friends; trying to obtain safe, clean housing; or applying for a loan.

An Ally’s Guide to Issues Facing LGBT Americans highlights all of these issues and more–as well as opportunities for change–in an accessible, easy-to-read report that can be used to spark discussion and educate allied non-profits and funders, media, policymakers, and even co-workers, friends and family members who don’t fully understand the daily inequalities LGBT people face.
