People should be judged at work by their performance, not their sexual orientation. If you work hard and do your job effectively, you shouldn’t be fired just because you’re gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender. Great performance deserves a fair workplace. LGBT people are productive members of the Lincoln community, who contribute to the economy and it’s only fair they be able to earn a living like all other productive workers.
