Fired for being gay. Need your help

Fired for Being Gay – Need Your Help

Last month, I was wrongfully fired from my job for being gay. I was harassed with homophobic slurs in a hostile work environment, and punished after reporting the abuse. Days after the Supreme Court ruled that workplace discrimination against LGBTQ people is illegal, I was fired over the phone.

I am fighting this. In the meantime, I’m having trouble finding new work during the pandemic, and I’m struggling to make ends meet.
