If you think that the nationwide recognition of same-sex marriage means that there are no more legal issues to think about with respect to the still-marginalized LGBTQ (Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer or questioning) community, please know that you are woefully mistaken. While essential to LGBTQ liberation, marriage is not a panacea that brings full-lived equality to the entire community. There are many unresolved issues, especially for individuals who are lower income, transgender, people of color, living in rural communities, and much more. We can’t cover it all but, over the course of a few columns, we’ll endeavor to share some areas to consider. Whether you have seen LGBTQ folks in your office yet, or just want to be prepared for that eventuality, these are matters of concern to many.
