Discrimination Against LGBT People in Housing: Know Your Rights
Housing discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people takes a variety of forms. For example, couples have been discriminated against when shopping for a home. Others have been told they cannot put both partners’ names on a homeowner’s insurance policy, which is important to do if both partners share ownership of the home. And still other couples have been discriminated against when filing a claim as some insurance companies have attempted to refuse claims or cancel policies on the grounds that the owners are “unrelated.”
