Blog

The Pennsylvania Equality Project has published a web log that chronicles the events of the past four years. Since the inception of this website, I have written my thoughts about various topics including PEP and ME4PA events, marriage equality, bullying, hazing, immigration, and other matters important to the LGBT community. If you would like to add your comments, contact paequality@hotmail.com for details on becoming a guest blogger.

Petitions

Send a message to the Pennsylvania legislature about the Fairness Act. We demand to be treated equally under the law whether lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer. Furthermore, we need protection from discrimination for housing, employment, and all public accommodations. Our lives matter, and we must fight to win our rights. Sign today.
