ACLU has been fighting for the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people since 1936, when it brought its first gay rights case. Our goal is an America where LGBT people can live openly, with their identities, relationships and families respected. We fight discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, working for fair treatment on the job and in schools, housing, public places and health care.
ACLU-TN sent a letter to Gov. Lee urging him to veto legislation that would unconstitutionally discriminate against transgender people in public schools and businesses.
