We're seeing lots of ways in which existing nondiscrimination protections ... where people are allowed to just say, '˜Huh, that doesn't agree with my religion and so I'm going to shut the door on these people.'"

Vermont became the first state in the U.S. to give full marriage rights to same-sex couples in 2000.  Now, 37 states allow marriage between same-sex partners. However, marriage is only one of a number of issues where equality is the goal. Stacey Long Simmons of The LGBTQ Task Force discusses the current state of LGBTQ Equality.  She states, "We're seeing lots of ways in which existing nondiscrimination protections in housing or employment or in public retail settings, etc., where people are allowed to just say, '˜Huh, that doesn't agree with my religion and so I'm going to shut the door on these people.'"
