I’ve been busy the past few days with working at home, writing about working at home, and trying to clean my home. As a result, some things tend to escape through the cracks of my mind. However, there is one sad note from this week, concerning the passing of an important LGBT+ figure, that should not go unnoticed.
That person was Aimee Stephens. If the name rings a bell, it’s because she was a litigant in one of three separate cases concerning LGBT+ rights that the United States Supreme Court heard last October. Stephens’ case involves whether Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which bars employment discrimination based on one’s “sex,” pertains to a person’s gender identity.
