As 2018 comes to an end, Michigan’s LGBTQ community can look back on a year filled with both hard hits to our rights along with major political wins toward greater equality. On a national scale, the rights of transgender individuals have been threatened along with the security of marriage equality, yet the year’s midterm elections saw a huge rise in pro-equality candidates.
Locally, this year Michiganders fought against conversion therapy and banded together to protect the rights of those promoting self-expression with events like Drag Queen Story Time. At the same time, populous cities in Michigan scored well above the national average on Human Rights Campaign’s Municipal Equality Index.
