LGBT+ Rights In Pennsylvania
In the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) persons face some legal challenges and discrimination not experienced by non-LGBT residents. Same-sex sexual activity is legal in Pennsylvania. Same-sex couples and families headed by same-sex couples are eligible for all of the protections available to opposite-sex married couples. Pennsylvania was the final Mid-Atlantic state without same-sex marriage, indeed lacking any form of same-sex recognition law until its statutory ban was overturned on May 20, 2014.
Discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity is not banned in the state. However some cities and counties ban such discrimination. These areas, which are also considered to be the most gay friendly areas of PA include Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Allentown, Erie and Reading. These 5 areas are also the most populated cities in Pennsylvania. Some cities and counties within Pennsylvania also ban conversion therapy on minors. In August 2018, the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission interpreted existing state law covering sex discrimination as including the categories of sexual orientation and gender identity, effectively banning discrimination against LGBT people in employment, housing, education, and public accommodation. If you feel that these rights have been violated it behooves you to contact our gay Carlisle lawyers for a free case analysis.
