Phoenix Earns a Perfect Score on LGBT Equality From Human Rights Campaign



The City of Phoenix earned a perfect score in the Human Rights Campaign's measure of how inclusive city governments are of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people.

Phoenix is one of just 25 cities nationwide that earned a perfect score, of a few hundred surveyed, and one of just eight cities to earn a perfect score in states with laws that restrict cities from being more inclusive of LGBT people.
