USA Today Exclusive: ‘Not just about a cake shop’: LGBT people battle bias in everyday routines


This week, USA Today published an exclusive feature about the impacts of the everyday experiences of discrimination faced by LGBT people. To tell this story, USA Today turned to MAP’s latest report, a policy spotlight on nondiscrimination protections in public accommodations around the country. The article also features a new ad entitled Movie Theater, showing how transgender people in particular face discrimination and harassment in public accommodations.

MAP’s mission is to help speed equality for LGBT people by reaching broad audiences with powerful messaging, policy research, and public education videos. The visibility of MAP’s work in a major news outlet like USA Today, which has a daily readership of nearly 3.3 million people, helps us spread the message that LGBT people continue to face discrimination today, and that nondiscrimination protections need to be enacted nationwide. Businesses that are open to the public should be open to all.
