GLBT Report

Should Maine’s Human Rights Act be extended to include basic civil rights protections against discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity? While many Maine citizens believe that discrimination is wrong, many also don’t know whether discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity is a problem.

In 2005, CPHV began an investigation of the extent and impact of anti-GLBT discrimination. By conducting confidential interviews across the state, CPHV was able to collect disturbing evidence that Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender individuals experience discrimination in employment, public accommodation, education, housing and credit.
