Michigan, The Worst State For LGBT Families

Written by 

Michigan could become the less LGBT-friendly state if a bill preventing employers to give benefits to anyone not married or related to an employee.

"While these benefits are often used by both straight and gay couples, anti-gay lawmakers are specifically trying to deny gay couples the ability to care for their families," said Emily Dievendorf, director of policy for Equality Michigan.

In the same time, Michigan also voted to don't give the possibility for any union to negotiate on benefits for unmarried couples.

Michigan already banned gay marriage in its constitution.
