November 3rd at 7pm The American Law Journal presents: Fired for being gay: LGBT Rights at the Workplace

By | November 3, 2014

MagIn case you missed it the first time, Philadelphia’s CNN affiliate is re-airing the segment we did on LGBT Rights in the Workplace TONIGHT, Monday Nov. 3 at 7PM on WFMZ-TV. It was a remarkable show to be a part of as Dan Miller, someone who was fired for being gay, myself and Anthony Haller discuss HB 300, ENDA and more. There is a lot of work to be done on employment discrimination in the LGBT community and pieces like this help raise awareness about the progress we still have left to achieve. Tune in TONIGHT at 7PM.

On October 21st join Jonathan Grode and I as we discuss immigration as it relates to same-sex couples after the fall of DOMA. Far too many LGBTQ individuals have been blocked from re-entering their native countries for years upon years. As we come closer to receiving full rights under the law this no longer has to be reality. Join us at the Noël Sy Art in Beauty at 7pm to learn more. Can’t wait to see everyone there!

Changing the State of Hate-Crime Laws in Pennsylvania

By | September 29, 2014

tumblr_madb5cLO0b1rdh3oho1_500On Sept. 11, two gay men, ages 27 and 28, were brutally gay-bashed, allegedly by a group of young people who were dining earlier that evening at La Viola in Philadelphia. The two men went to the hospital with injuries, one with a broken jaw that needed to be wired shut, all of which police say was preceded by disparaging remarks about their sexual orientation. Since then, it has been a whirlwind; after two weeks of investigation and through the help of social media, three of the alleged 15 assailants were charged with crimes associated with the incident—simple assault, aggravated assault, recklessly endangering another person and criminal conspiracy—but shockingly, hate crimes are missing among the charges listed.
