Pride Lafayette On SCOTUS Decision: More Still To Be Done

Rich Renomeron

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of marriage equality Friday morning. Same-sex couples already had the right to marry in Indiana, but now those marriages will be recognized in all 50 states.

Despite the good news, Pride Lafayette Vice President Nicki Anderson says Indiana can still enact more protections for its LGBTQ citizens.

"People can still get fired from their jobs, kicked out of apartments, kicked out of their housing because they’re gay," Anderson says.

Laws prohibiting discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation exist in only five Indiana cities, including West Lafayette. Lafayette only protects sexual orientation. Anderson says Indiana still needs a statewide non-discrimination rule.
