Disgraceful: Fired Because They’re LGBTQ

by Robin Maril

Our rights are once again on the line at the Supreme Court.

Our rights are once again on the line at the Supreme Court.

On Tuesday, the Court will hear three major LGBTQ civil rights cases that could decide how federal non-discrimination laws apply to LGBTQ people. In each case, a worker was fired –– not because of their performance or work ethic, but because they are part of the LGBTQ community.

The decision made in these cases will impact millions of LGBTQ people across the country, so it’s important to stay in the know.

Text SCOTUS to 472472 and HRC will update you as the cases progress and send you the decision as soon as it comes down this spring.

In the meantime, check out our explainer infographic and share it with friends –– it breaks down what this case is all about and why the decision will be so significant to us.


LGBTQ workers like Aimee Stephens, Donald Zarda and Gerald Lynn Bostock don’t deserve to lose their jobs unjustly.

No one deserves to be denied a job or fired simply because of who they are or whom they love, period.

I’ll personally be monitoring the Court closely in the months ahead for all our HRC members and supporters.

For the latest updates on these three cases –– and other important news impacting equality –– text SCOTUS to 472472.
