The place where they were attacked is
more than a nightclub -- it is a place of
solidarity and empowerment where
people have come together to raise
awareness, to speak their minds, and to
advocate for their civil rights

Institutional Discrimination: State Level
Florida lacks non-discrimination laws for the
categories of sexual orientation and gender identity
No laws in Florida exist that ban discrimination
against LGBTQ people for housing, employment, or
restaurant service
There are protections in place for race, color,
religion, sex, national origin, age, handicap and
marital status

Institutional Discrimination: Police Force
Discrimination and harassment by law enforcement
based on sexual orientation and gender identity is an
ongoing and pervasive problem in the LGBT
communities
This causes a lack of trust & ineffective
communication
For example, a study was done that revealed only
56% of hate violence survivors reported such
incidences to the police

Another study was completed with 2,376 LGBT people or people with
HIV in 2014
73% had face-to-face interaction with the police
21% reported encountering hostile attitudes from officers, 14%
reported verbal assault by the police, 3% reported sexual
harassment and 2% reported physical assault at the hands of law
enforcement officers
