This month, McOmber McOmber & Luber celebrates LGBTQ Pride Month. As discrimination and civil rights lawyers, we fight each and every day to advance the rights of the LGBTQ community. For too long, the LGBTQ community stood in the dark, oppressed by the law and society. Today, thanks to advancements in the law, the LGBTQ community can step from the shadows and show their true colors with pride. Although there is a great deal of work ahead, today we recognize the courage and persistence of the LGBTQ community for being true to themselves in the face of blatant discrimination. We stand with our brothers and sisters of the LGBTQ community in their fight for equality, not just in the law, but within the fabric of the nation.
“Equality means more than passing laws. The struggle is really won in the hearts and minds of the community, where it really counts.” – Barbara Gittings
