Real estate service respects and supports LGBTQ members serving in military

GayRealEstate.com Strives to Promote Equal Respect Among All Service Members

Press Release - October 24, 2018

GayRealEstate.com, a service connecting clients with compatible agents, promotes the equal respect of all military service members, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identification. GayRealEstate.com is a proud supporter of American Veterans for Equal Rights (AVER), a non-profit Veterans Service Organization of active, reserve and veteran service members dedicated to equal rights and equitable treatment for all present and former members of the U.S. Armed Forces.

LGBTQ military personnel have historically experienced discrimination. Though significant progress has occurred, discrimination still persists. Most notably with the recent conversation regarding banning transgender individuals from the military.

The Obama administration announced a plan in 2016 for the armed services to begin accepting transgender recruits at the start of this year, according to an article published in The New York Times. But before the plan could take effect, President Trump abruptly reversed course, announcing in July 2017 that the military would “no longer accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity,” because the military “cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail.”

Other discriminatory practices implemented in the military include the 1982 ban of homosexual service members, the 1993 Don't Ask, Don't Tell, Don't Pursue law and the un-recognition of same-sex marriages among service members until 2013.

GayRealEstate.com is committed to ensuring that their clients are connected with agents who will represent their best interests and treat them with respect. With more than 25 years of experience as the industry leader, GayRealEstate.com is proud to support the LGBTQ community and strives to ensure that every property transaction is conducted with integrity, void of discrimination and intolerance.

GayRealEstate.com strives to ensure the protection and respect of all people, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identification, and will continue to advocate for full and equal treatment of every U.S. Armed Forces service member.
