Freedom to Work
This is a site about discrimination at work and support if you experience it. 

This is a site explaining ENDA (The Employment Non-Discrimination Act) and where LGBT populations fall in the act—ie: no protections. GLAAD amplifies the voice of the LGBT community by empowering real people to share their stories, holding the media accountable for the words and images they present, and helping grassroots organizations communicate effectively. By ensuring that the stories of LGBT people are heard through the media, GLAAD promotes understanding, increases acceptance, and advances equality.
