Funeral Home


A grieving widow has just lost her spouse. She, her parents, and her in-laws enter a funeral home to arrange burial services. But they are turned away when the staff realize that the woman and her late spouse are lesbians.

This story, inspired by a real legal case, is the center of a new ad, “Funeral Home,” produced by MAP as part of the Open to All public education campaign.

People think discrimination like this couldn’t happen, but it does and it did.

This ad explains how a decision by the U.S. Supreme Court in favor of discrimination could make matters worse.

Inspired by a real case, this ad, “Funeral Home,” shows devastating harms of service refusals by businesses that serve the public

"Funeral Home" is the latest in a series of ads that illustrate how a loss in the Masterpiece Cakeshop case would open the door to wide-ranging forms of discrimination. A ruling for the bakery in this case could sanction and encourage this type of discrimination not just against LGBT people, but also interfaith couples, people of color, women, people with disabilities, and others. A decision in this case is expected by June.

LGBT people continue to be at risk for discrimination in their daily lives, even at their most painful moments, like when burying a loved one. Thirty-one states lack nondiscrimination protections for LGBT people in public places. And there are no federal nondiscrimination protections in public accommodations for LGBT people. As a result, just over half of LGBT people in the United States live in a state where businesses, including funeral homes, can refuse to serve someone because of who they are.

As a nation, we decided a long time ago that businesses and services that are open to the public should be open to all. Nobody should be turned away simply because of who they are.

Non-Discrimination Laws


Today, MAP and the Family Equality Council released a new report, Putting Children at Risk: How Efforts to Undermine Marriage Equality Harm Children. The report shows how, in the three years since the landmark marriage ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges, there has been a coordinated strategy to undermine marriage equality, and how those efforts harm the estimated 300,000 children raised by same-sex couples. Most recently, two states passed laws that restrict fostering and adoption placements for LGBT parents, reflecting a disturbing trend in states across the country towards religiously-based service refusals that put children at risk.

Efforts by anti-LGBT opponents include:

Plain refusals by some government officials, state legislators, and courts to fully recognize the marriages of same-sex couples and their relationship with their children; and,

Refusals by individuals, businesses, government contractors, and even government employees claiming they have a religiously-based right to discriminate against LGBT people, including the children of LGBT people. These license to discriminate efforts are reflected in legislation, court cases, and agency guidance around the country.

With courts requiring that state governments treat all married couples fairly, this tactic of individuals, businesses, and government agencies claiming a religious exemption to following nondiscrimination laws is gaining traction. This has an especially harmful impact on LGBT families and LGBT parents seeking to adopt or start families. A same-sex couple could be refused pregnancy and birth healthcare services, a child with two mothers could be denied entrance to their local preschool, a child could be refused critical medical treatment because she was denied an accurate birth certificate listing both parents, or a qualified, loving same-sex couple could be rejected from fostering a child in need. In fact, all of these scenarios have already happened.

Also, just this year, two states—Oklahoma and Kansas—have passed laws granting child welfare agencies a license to discriminate against prospective parents, leaving the nation’s most vulnerable children with fewer prospective parents.

Read more about this report in an exclusive from USA Today.

And, the U.S. Supreme Court is poised to issue a ruling in the Masterpiece Cakeshop case by the end of June. This case has the potential to undo decades of nondiscrimination laws by allowing businesses to pick and choose which customers to serve.

By refusing to recognize the marriages of same-sex couples, and by attempting to insert religious exemptions into nondiscrimination laws that protect LGBT people, the report concludes that the threats to LGBT families and their children are real. And, in states without nondiscrimination laws and in states where legislatures have pushed religious exemption laws, the ultimate result is that children are harmed.
