HUD Investigates Housing Discrimination Against Gays

For the first time ever HUD has added on sexual orientation and gender identity to its ten year nationwide discrimination in-housing study. While sexual orientation is not federally recognized by HUD as a protected category, over 80 states including New York do recognize it as protected. HUD studies are conducted by having two testers apply to rent the same apartment with exactly the same qualifications other than their sexual orientation. This is an attempt by HUD to make the agency more inclusive to the LGBT community.
