Tucson Earns Perfect Score in LGBT Equal Rights Survey

The City of Tucson earned a score of 100 in the latest survey about lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) equal rights.

The sixth annual Municipal Equality Index (MEI), compiled by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation and the Equality Federation Institute, examined the laws, policies, and services of municipalities, rating them on the basis of how they affect LGBT people who live and work there. Some of the categories include non-discrimination laws, municipal employee benefits, anti-bullying policies, city involvement with the LGBT community, and local governments' relationships with the LGBT community.

Phoenix and Tempe also earned perfect scores in the survey. Read the article in the Arizona Republic.
