State Nondiscrimination and Hate Crimes laws were passed in 2003, protecting on the basis of both sexual orientation and gender identity. However, we know that 'legal' equality does not always translate to 'lived' equality. As such, we work against efforts to undermine existing protections for LGBTQ New Mexicans, educate on fair treatment, and continue to be a resource for addressing discrimination throughout the state.
In December 2013, the New Mexico Supreme Court ruled that same-gender couples in New Mexico have the right to marry. In June 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in support of nationwide marriage equality.
