Human Rights Campaign

The largest national LGBT organization, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) bills itself as 'a bipartisan organization that works to advance equality based on sexual orientation and gender expressing and identity, to ensure that gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Americans can be open, honest and safe at home, at work and in the community.' The scope of the information on HRC's website is immense, and it is typically broken down by issue (same sex marriage, transgender issues, lesbians and gays in the military, workplace discrimination, etc.).

The site's content varies by issue, but typically includes at least some of the following:  background information on the issue, reports issued by the HRC or other credible organizations or government agencies, current legislation, and previous congressional scorecards.  On HRC's website, you may also research individual states' climates for LGBT people (as made evident through the states' laws), as well as current legislation of specific interest to LGBT people.

We are indebted to Sivagami (Shiva) Subbaraman of the Office of Human Relations Programs (www.ohrp.umd.edu/WE/) and the Office of LGBT Equity at the University of Maryland, for compiling this and other great LGBT resources for the NCDD website. LGBT is short for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender.
