Video: Paying an Unfair Price: Maria's Story

The Bottom Line

This short video, based on findings from Paying an Unfair Price: The Financial Penalty for Being LGBT in America, demonstrates the arbitrary but painful economic impact of anti-LGBT laws in America. An LGBT person who happens to live in a low-equality state pays a series of financial penalties that can add up to poverty and destitution. Meanwhile, across the state line, an LGBT person in a high-equality state largely escapes these penalties and is able to adequately provide for his or her family.
