Minnesota is the most conservative states in the country when it comes to LGBT equality, according to a new report from GLAAD.
GLAad says the state is the only one in the entire nation where it’s illegal to discriminate against LGBT people.
The organization’s report shows that Minnesota ranks No. 1 in terms of discrimination against LGBT citizens, including hate crimes and harassment.
The report, “Minnesota’s Largest LGBT Community” lists the state as one of the most LGBT-friendly states in America.
Minnesota has the third-highest level of protections for LGBTQ people in the U.S., according to the report.
According to GLAAd, Minnesota ranks second in the percentage of Americans who have experienced at least one hate crime or harassment, and the fifth-highest percentage of people who are “living openly as their gender identity or expression.”
“We know that Minnesota is not perfect,” GLAADD President and CEO Chad Griffin said in a statement.
“But we’re hopeful that as we work to make it even better, we can continue to be the most inclusive, tolerant, and compassionate state in America.”
GLAADA is a national organization that supports the rights and equality of all people.
It works to ensure that everyone is treated with dignity and respect.
