Study Shows Rental Discrimination Against Same-Sex Couples

Posted: Updated:

A new study reveals same-sex couples are being discriminated against when seeking rental apartments online.

Gay and lesbian couples received almost 16-percent fewer responses to rental inquiries according to the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

The research was based on more than 6,800 e-mail correspondence tests in 50 U.S. cities.

Twenty states and the District of Columbia have enacted legislation to prohibit discrimination against gays and lesbians.
