Discrimination and Harassment

Discrimination, harassment, and violence remain an all-too-real challenge for many LGBTQ people, causing harm to their physical and mental health. We help lesbians, gay men, bisexual individuals, and people who are transgender in understanding and asserting their rights to equal treatment under the constantly evolving array of federal, state, and local laws that protect LGBTQ people against discrimination. We assist people seeking fair treatment in their workplace, in a restaurant, or when seeking health care or insurance coverage to address their medical needs.  

Mazzoni Center Legal Services advises and represents LGBTQ individuals who are experiencing discrimination, harassment, and other barriers because of their sexual orientation, their gender identity, or both areas that include:
  • Employment
  • Housing and public accommodation
  • Equal access to education
  • Health care
  • Health insurance coverage
