The American Psychological Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, the bible of American mental health, says “same-sex attraction is a disorder.”
It also says “gender identity is a mental disorder.”
This statement is a landmark ruling that has opened up the floodgates for thousands of LGBT people across the country.
The APA made it clear that it has not changed its position on this issue.
But the issue has taken a different turn in the courts, with a growing number of states legalizing same-sex marriages.
This is because of a landmark decision from the US Supreme Court.
The ruling in 2015 found that states could not legally discriminate against gay couples because of their sexual orientation, but could not deny them the right to marry under the federal Marriage Clause.
The case involved an Indiana couple who married after being denied a marriage license because they were transgender.
The court ruled that the state could not refuse to issue a marriage certificate to them.
The Indiana case involved a state law that required that a marriage be solemnized by a licensed minister.
Indiana’s law also excluded transgender people from the marriage definition.
In 2016, the court overturned that law and ruled that states can no longer discriminate against LGBT people.
But in 2018, the Supreme Court struck down that ruling, saying that states cannot discriminate against someone based on their gender identity.
It is unclear how many states have changed their laws to allow same-gender marriage, but there have been a handful.
Indiana became the first state in 2016 to legalize same-gendered marriage, and Indiana Governor Mike Pence signed a law that created a new constitutional right to same-seated marriage.
But this was just the beginning of the shift.
On Friday, the U.S. Supreme Court decided to hear an appeal by three gay couples challenging a North Carolina law that they said discriminates against them by barring them from using bathrooms that match their gender identities.
The law also bans cities and counties from passing nondiscrimination ordinances that protect LGBT people from discrimination in the workplace.
The three couples argued that the North Carolina statute violated the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment, which protects against racial discrimination.
The justices agreed with the plaintiffs that North Carolina’s ban on gender-neutral bathrooms violated the 14-year-old U.N. Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination.
The North Carolina case is one of a number of cases that have opened up new avenues for LGBT people in North Carolina.
In April, the United States Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit sided with two lesbian couples in a case challenging the state’s anti-discrimination law.
The federal appeals court said North Carolina should not have to prove that the law was motivated by gender identity to justify discrimination against the two couples.
In another case, the appeals court upheld a law banning discrimination based on sexual orientation in a federal housing program.
The decision came in a lawsuit brought by three LGBT individuals who were denied access to housing by their local housing agency.
The housing agency denied them a voucher to rent apartments in the city of Raleigh, but the couples challenged the housing policy, claiming it violated the Americans with Disabilities Act.
They said that if they were denied housing based on who they were, they would not be able to get services that would allow them to live independently.
The appeals court disagreed, finding that the agency’s discrimination was motivated primarily by sex and was therefore constitutional.
The state of North Carolina appealed the ruling.
The Supreme Court heard arguments in the case on Friday.
The high court will hear oral arguments on the case in January.
This week, the justices will decide whether to take up a challenge to the North Dakota law that is currently on the books in that state.
That law prohibits transgender people in the state from using restrooms that correspond with the sex on their birth certificates.
The U.R.T. has identified more than 20 states that have passed laws prohibiting discrimination based upon gender identity in housing, employment, education and other areas.
There are about 3.3 million Americans who identify as LGBT, and there are about 1.3 billion Americans who are transgender, according to the Williams Institute, a conservative think tank based in Washington, D.C.
