The marriage equality dominoes tipped. Marriage equality allows some to protect their possessions, to obtain spousal benefits, and for those with children to more easily negotiate that terrain. Obtaining full civil rights is the next step.

Having full civil rights will come with passing a legislation packet that grants full non-discrimination protections on the basis of sexual orientation, and gender identity equal to those statuses already under civil rights laws and Supreme Court jurisprudence, specifically including:

Public Accommodations (Title II, 1964 Civil Rights Act) (e.g., restaurants, hotels, theaters)

Public Facilities (Title III, 1964 Civil Rights Act) (e.g., courthouses, jails, hospitals, parks)

Federally-Funded Programs (Title VI, 1964 Civil Rights Act) (e.g., adoption, police, schools, homeless youth, health care)

Employment (Title VII, 1964 Civil Rights Act; 1978 Civil Service Reform Act; 1991 Government Employee Rights Act; 1995 Congressional Accountability Act; 10 U.S.C. Ch. 37) (e.g., civilian and military government, private sector)

Housing (Title VIII, 1968 Civil Rights Act, aka the Fair Housing Act) (e.g., rental, purchase, finance)

Education (Title IX, 1972 Education Amendments Act) (e.g., schools, bullying)

Credit (1974 Equal Credit Opportunity Act) (e.g., credit cards)

Federal Marriage Equality (based on gender, SO) (e.g., 1967 Supreme Court Decision, Loving v. Virginia)

Immigration, Disability, and Family Leave (Uniting American Families Act (proposed), the American With Disabilities Act, and the Family and Medical Leave Act

Simply put, we want 4 words added to the civil rights act; Sexual orientation and gender identity.
