Do you run an LGBT-friendly company? Would you like free advertising on our page? We are offering free weblinks from our website to yours on the only Pennsylvania statewide resource of its kind. Looking for a LGBT-friendly company for your next event? If you are planning to get married, need a florist or wedding venue, turn to us for help. Our list of businesses covers all of Pennsylvania and some businesses in surrounding states. Check out our website first.


The Pennsylvania Equality Project has published a web log that chronicles the events of the past four years. Since the inception of this website, I have written my thoughts about various topics including PEP and ME4PA events, marriage equality, bullying, hazing, immigration, and other matters important to the LGBT community. If you would like to add your comments, contact [email protected] for details on becoming a guest blogger.


Send a message to the Pennsylvania legislature about the Fairness Act. We demand to be treated equally under the law whether lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer. Furthermore, we need protection from discrimination for housing, employment, and all public accommodations. We are fighting to add sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression to Pennsylvania's ethnic intimidation laws. Our lives matter, and we must fight to win our rights. Sign today. Also check out our newest petition fight...a ban on conversion therapy in State College. We are working with Front and Centre to make that happen.

What we are fighting for in 2017

The Pennsylvania Equality Project will continue to fight for...
1. Passage of the Pennsylvania Fairness Act to end discrimination against the LGBT community in Pennsylvania.
2. Stopping the First Amendment Defense Act from passing Congress.
3. An end to conversion or "ex-gay" therapy and its use on all minors in Pennsylvania.
4. Passage of House Bill 505 and  Senate Bill 96 which would add sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression, and disability as protected classes for “ethnic intimidation” or hate crimes law.
5. Passage of legislation to strengthen anti-bullying laws in Pennsylvania to help protect LGBT youth and provide school officials the tools they need to combat bullying.
6. An end to LGBT youth homelessness through promotion of safe houses and scholarship opportunities for homeless LGBT youth.
7. Election of LGBT-friendly candidates to the Pennsylvania General Assembly, the Senate, and the U.S. Congress.
8. Protection of LGBT older adults.
9. A voice for all LGBT people who are otherwise disenfranchised, and in potential danger of deportation.
10. A call to reduce suicide by LGBT people in Pennsylvania.
