The Pennsylvania Equality Project

None are Equal until All are Equal

Half of All Proceeds Donated by January 31 go to Change Philly Today

What do we stand for?

The Pennsylvania Equality Project stands for the same goals that Marriage Equality for Pennsylvania once fought. Now that marriage equality is the law in Pennsylvania, PEP realizes that we have more vital work to finish. Thus, we are fighting for these reasons:
1. We want an end to legal discrimination against the LGBT community for all public accommodations, including housing, employment, lodging, and all business entities that serve the general public within the Commonwealth.

2. We want to end bigotry and racism for all minority people in Pennsylvania.

3. We want to engage in dialog with local school boards across Pennsylvania to implement programs that support an end to bullying. No student should suffer at the hands of a bully in school. All students deserve a free and appropriate public education that is void of tormenting and taunting.

4. We want to end the use of conversion or "reparative" therapy in Pennsylvania. This discredited fraud must be abandoned in Pennsylvania before any more children suffer at the hands of abusers posing as "therapists."

5. We want to include the LGBT community within Pennsylvania's classes protected by existing hate crime legislation. 

6. We will work with other organizations across Pennsylvania that support causes for women, for people of color, and for people who are struggling as a result of poverty.

7. We will raise awareness  about LGBT youth homelessness. Far too many children are removed from their homes solely for being lesbian, gay, bisexual, and/or transgender. -- David

LGBT Homeless Youth in Philadelphia Need Our Help

Being homeless is tough, but being young, homeless and LGBTQ in Philadelphia is even tougher. Joell Thomas Lord, a 23-year-old gay man who has been living on the streets of Philly, should know.

Lisa Sipes and Rusty Doll have teamed up to help people like Joell. They started the non-profit Change Philly Today, and they aim to open a transitional safe house specifically for LGBTQ youth in the city of brotherly love. We have more videos on our LGBT Youth page.
