Was chatting with my co-workers in the breakroom today about stuff and I mentioned the one time that I got fired for being gay.
“What? They can’t do that, can they? Really?”
“They can. I mean, they shouldn’t- but they can. I came out to a co-worker and then the next day I was booted.”
“If they’d done that to me, I would have just stolen something out of spite. Like… a stapler or something,” says the janitor.
“Well… I was working for the zoo.”
She paused for a moment and her eyes glossed over. “I woulda stolen so many tigers.”
Firing someone for being LGBT is still legal in 27 states. Pass it on.
Here’s a handy map.
And for those asking, the zoo is in Indiana, but they have since changed management.
