From Louisiana State University’s The Daily Reveille:
Legislative assistant Michael Beyer said Rep. Jared Brossett is also working with EQLA to address housing discrimination against LGBT people.
Beyer said many LGBT groups do not focus as vehemently on housing and tend to direct most of their attention on employment, but it is an important issue.
“You shouldn’t be able to ask someone about their identity or charge them a different rate [in housing] because of their identity,” Beyer said.
Micah Caswell, graduate coordinator for the LGBTQ Project and Safe Space Campaign in the Office of Multicultural Affairs, said because more than half of University students live off campus, especially after their freshman year, fair housing is an issue everywhere.
