The legal standing and rights of LGBT people in the United States has never been better, but LGBT persons still continue to face a pervasive nature of discrimination and hate often on a daily basis. These daily struggles are a reminder that LGBT people are in many respects still second-class citizens, not protected by the federal government against discrimination, and routinely subject to harassment. There are still many civil, legal, and financial rights that heterosexual persons routinely enjoy that similarly situated LGBT persons do not.
