What we provide

Parents’ Guide to Cyberbullying

Standard bullying has now gone online, and it is easier for bullies to carry out their operations. What is especially worrying is that the child will often have no refuge at home or anywhere else. If he or she is carrying a device, there may be no escape. What was once a playground phenomenon can now take place anywhere, anytime, thanks to technology.

Surveys

The Pennsylvania Equality Project conducts surveys that run for approximately two months per survey. We consider topics such as where discrimination occurs in PA, coming out, and other LGBTQ+ issues.

Business Listings

If you own and operate a business that supports the LGBTQ+ community, we offer free listings. If you are looking for an LGBTQ+ friendly business in PA, these listings are for you too.

Pass the Fairness Act

The people of Pennsylvania must be treated equally in terms of, but not limited to, employment, education, and housing regardless of real or perceived sexual or gender identity. The lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community should not be relegated to second class citizenry solely because of who we love or how we portray ourselves. All Pennsylvanians are worthy of equal treatment under the law.
