LEARN MORE ABOUT THE LGBTQ+ COMMUNITY
LGBTQ+ HISTORY & POLICY
Explore an in-depth history of the LGBTQ+ community throughout America from the History Channel, from the timeline of the historic Stonewall Riots, gay culture in the roaring 20s, a gay Revolutionary War hero and more!
Federal, state of Illinois and local Cook County laws state that it is illegal to discriminate against any individual based on gender identity and sexual orientation. If you or your client experience any discrimination, make sure you report it to the Commission of Human Relations. Also, be sure to check out the resources that are available with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
