Bipartisan Bill Seeks LGBTQ Housing Protections
New legislation could extend housing protections to LGBTQ individuals nationwide.
U.S. Rep. Brad Schneider, an Illinois Democrat, Tuesday introduced legislation to extend consistent nondiscrimination rules. The Fair and Equal Housing Act of 2019 would cover sexual orientation and gender identity the same as race, color, religion, national origin, sex, familial status or disability.
“No American should face discrimination finding a home because of who they are or who they love,” Schneider said in a press release.
“Yet the majority of states still have no laws prohibiting housing discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. I am proud to lead this long overdue bipartisan bill to extend federal protections to ensure all LGBTQ individuals and same-sex couples can access housing without prejudice. I am also pleased that these important housing protections were incorporated into the Equality Act, and I look forward to voting on this anti-discrimination package soon.”
Neighbors come together after Charleston family's pride flag is burned
A family in Charleston, South Carolina, said their rainbow pride flag was torn down from the front of their house and burned in their driveway last weekend.
“We were taken aback and thought, ‘Wow, somebody must be really bothered by this to go to this end here to do this.’ But we called the police to let them know about it,” the homeowner, who lives with his wife and three young children, told NBC News.
“There's people on our street that have South Carolina flags, United States flags, different college flags, garden flags … obviously the rainbow is what attracted them to ours,” the homeowner, who asked that his name not be printed to protect his family’s safety and privacy, added. “I wouldn't be surprised if the people who did this didn't even know who we were or who lived in the home, that it was just the fact that it was a rainbow flag, and they didn't agree with that.”
Man pleads guilty after attacking gay man then bragging about it online
A man has pleaded guilty to aggravated assault after attacking a gay man and then bragging about it on social media.
24-year-old Brandon Michael Wiley is from Lewisburg, Tennessee, reports the Daily News Journal.
Last summer, Wiley entered MJ’s Sports Bar and Grill on Broad Street in Murfreesboro.
He initially claimed a 39-year-old gay man ‘grabbed his junk and molested him,’ according to a report filed with Murfreesboro police.
But that story didn’t line up with video evidence, say police.

Married Lesbian Couple Rejected From Senior Home
When Mary Walsh, 72, and Bev Nance, 68 applied to be residents at Friendship Village, a senior living community in St. Louis, they were rejected because they were married, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
The couple, who had been together for nearly four decades, repeatedly visited the village and even dropped a $2,000 deposit. Their plans to move were cut short when an administrator sent them a letter that said, “Your request to share a single unit does not fall within the categories permitted by the long-standing policy of Friendship Village Sunset Hills.”
