More than a dozen members of the gay community, fair housing advocates and officials have weighed in on a first-ever national survey of anti-gay housing discrimination.
The U.S. Housing and Urban Development Department held a listening session in late February at Chicago City Hall. Sessions also are set for New York and San Francisco as HUD gathers input on how best to design the survey.
In Chicago, housing advocates shared stories of discrimination from their clients.
Raphael Bostic, HUD’s assistant secretary for policy development and research, said the meeting proved substantive, thoughtful and provocative.
