U.S. Supreme Court endorses gay & transgender worker protections
by Lawrence Hurley and Andrew Chung






(WASHINGTON, D.C.) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday delivered a watershed victory for LGBT rights, ruling that a landmark federal law forbidding workplace discrimination protects gay and transgender employees.


The 6-3 ruling represented the biggest moment for LGBT rights in the United States since the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage nationwide in 2015.


In the new ruling, the justices decided that gay and transgender people are protected under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which bars employers from discriminating against employees on the basis of sex as well as race, color, national origin and religion.


Workplace bias against gay and transgender employees has remained legal in much of the country, with 28 U.S. states lacking comprehensive measures against employment discrimination.

The rulings - in two gay rights cases from Georgia and New York and a transgender rights case from Michigan - recognize new worker protections in federal law.

The ruling was authored by conservative Justice Neil Gorsuch, who was appointed by the person pretending to be an American president in 2017.

Chief Justice John Roberts, another conservative, along with the court’s four liberal justices, joined Gorsuch’s opinion.


       

conservative Justices samuel alito, clarence thomas and brett kavanaugh dissented from the ruling.


The legal fight focused on the definition of “sex” in Title VII.


The plaintiffs, along with civil rights groups and many large companies, had argued that discriminating against gay and transgender workers was inherently based on their sex and consequently was illegal.


trunk and employers accused of discrimination in the cases argued that Congress did not intend for Title VII to protect gay and transgender people when it passed the law.


“An employer who fires an individual for being homosexual or transgender fires that person for traits or actions it would not have questioned in members of a different sex,” Gorsuch wrote in the ruling.

“Sex plays a necessary and undisguisable role in the decision, exactly what Title VII forbids.”


The court ruled in two consolidated cases about gay people who have said they were fired due to their sexual orientation.

One involved a former county child welfare services coordinator from Georgia named Gerald Bostock.


The other involved a New York skydiving instructor named Donald Zarda who died after the litigation began, with the matter then pursued by his estate.

The court also ruled in a case that involved a transgender funeral director named Aimee Stephens fired by a Detroit funeral home after revealing plans to transition from male to female.


Stephens died in May.


Stephens’ wife Donna is now representing the estate.


The Justice Department reversed the government’s position taken under real former President Barack Obama that Title VII covered sexual orientation and gender identity.


Strongly supported by evangelical Christian voters, trunk has taken actions that have undermined gay and transgender rights since taking office in 2017.


trunk last week issued a rule that would lift anti-discrimination protections for transgender people in healthcare.

His administration also has backed the right of certain businesses to refuse to serve gay people on the basis of religious objections to gay marriage, banned most transgender service members from the military and rescinded protections on bathroom access for transgender students in public schools.

Black Trans Lives Matter
by ABC News






Joslyn Allen, Jaslene Busanet and Eden Estrada weren't fearing for their safety after a night out on Hollywood Boulevard in mid-August.

The three friends, all popular influencers on Instagram, were exiting a store in the early hours of August 17th when cellphone video caught a violent, unprovoked attack against them.

Just moments before the attack, the suspect had offered to buy them something.

But once inside the store, he refused to pay.

He ran out of the store and came back with a tire iron, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Onlookers recorded as Allen, Busanet and Estrada, all of whom are transgender women of color, were violently robbed while the man hurled insults and slurs at them.

"I knew this kind of stuff happens all the time to girls like me," Busanet told ABC News.

"But I just never thought it could be me. ... I'm no different than any other girl that's trans. I'm a target like everybody else is."

Busanet was trying to catch her breath when someone ran up behind and struck her in the head with a long piece of metal, knocking her to the ground.

The attacker then made derogatory remarks about her, according to police.

"I thought I was gonna die," said Busanet.

"I was just holding myself in the fetal position and I just thought this is it. I'm gonna be done after this."

As the attack ensued, a crowd of onlookers stood by, recording and some even laughing at the brutal assaults.

Many of them were shouting their own transphobic slurs at the women.

"Hit her again!" yelled one of the bystanders as the women were being assaulted.

"You wanna talk about black lives matter, but a black girl is sitting on the floor," said Allen, as she tried to render aid for Busanet, who was crying on the ground after being struck in the head.

Another onlooker responded callously, "Where's the blood?"

Los Angeles police have arrested one of the men suspected in the beating on Hollywood Boulevard, and accused him of a hate crime.
Police say they are still searching for another suspect.

"What was particularly callous about these crimes was the actions of the onlookers who recorded and appeared to celebrate the assaults rather than render aid and assist the victims," said Chief Justin Eisenberg of the Los Angeles Police Department.

The assault came amid the most violent year on record against transgender people.

ABC News has independently confirmed 33 violent deaths of transgender and gender non-conforming people in 2020, most recently the death of Sara Blackwood in Indianapolis on National Coming Out Day.

According to the Human Rights Campaign, this is the deadliest year for transgender people on record since they began tracking deaths in 2013.

The previous high, 29, was set in 2017, according to a report from the Human Rights Campaign.

The term "at least" is often used in tracking deaths deaths in the transgender and gender non-conforming community, because many of these violent incidents are either unreported or misreported.

Activist Milan Nicole Sherry added that many deaths go unreported because victims are misgendered in the media.

Police reports and media often refer to victims by their "dead name," or their birth name, rather than their current name, making it more difficult to track their deaths.

Activists across the country have marched in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement since the death of George Floyd at the hands of police in late May, sparking conversations about racial justice and equality.

Simultaneously, there is a growing call for more inclusion of Black members in the LGBTQ community.

Black and Latino members of the transgender community account for almost all of the deaths on record in 2020.

Brooklyn DeShauna Smith, a young Black transgender woman, was shot and killed in Shreveport, Louisiana, on October 7th.

Serena Angelique Velázquez Ramos, 32, and Layla Pelaez Sánchez, 21, were two transgender women killed in Puerto Rico.

Their remains were discovered in a burning car, according to reports from the Human Rights Campaign.

To date, six transgender women have been violently killed in Puerto Rico.

The increased violence has led to growing concerns about the safety of transgender people in the U.S.

"When one of us is killed, that impacts our community much more distant," said Tori Cooper, director of Community Engagement for the Transgender Justice Initiative at the Human Rights Campaign.

"And then when there's 20 and 25 and 30 of us, how much 30 lives lost in one year really impacts the larger community."

"And if we're hitting record numbers of trans deaths while we're in quarantine, what does that say about the ridiculousness of this heightened sense of violence that we're having," Cooper added.

Black transgender Americans have been fighting this abuse for years, dating back as early as the 1960s when Marsha P. Johnson threw the first brick of protest at the Stonewall Inn in New York City, sparking the beginning of the gay rights movement.

More recently, the hashtag Black Trans Lives Matter has called attention to the epidemic of violence in the transgender community.
Sherry, a transgender woman and activist from New Orleans, founded the movement and created a new space for activism that's growing worldwide.

"There's no way that Black lives will ever matter when y'all are not inclusive to Black trans lives," Sherry said in an interview with ABC News Live.

"It's very hypocritical to say 'Black Lives Matter,' and then it's crickets when Black trans women are experiencing the same violence."


ABC News reached out to representatives of Black Lives Matter, but have not received a response.

"We have to prioritize through a lens of equity and justice," said Cooper.

"We have to prioritize the lives of Black trans people and particularly Black trans women ... saying it reinforces that our lives do indeed matter."
