On January 28, Breanna Young participated in a virtual presentation, “LGBTQ+: Know Your Rights,” for The Supply Hive.
In her presentation, Breanna reviewed the rights of LGBTQ+ individuals in Iowa under the Iowa Civil Rights Act which makes it illegal to refuse or deny accommodations, facilities, services, or otherwise discriminate because of one’s race, creed, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, religion, or disability.
Breanna also walked the audience through the steps to correcting one’s name and gender markers on government documents while also explaining legal documents important for LGBTQ+ individuals to have and where to get them.
