Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.
The random article for Friday, 14 June 2019 is LGBT rights in Maryland.
The expansion of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) rights in the U. S. state of Maryland is a recent phenomenon, with most advances in LGBT rights occurring within the past two decades. Maryland has had statewide protections against discrimination based on an individual's sexual orientation since 2001 and gender identity since 2014. Legislation to legalize same-sex marriage in Maryland was approved by voters on November 6, 2012 and went into effect on January 1, 2013. Today, the state of Maryland is regarded as one of the most pro-LGBT states in the country, with two-thirds of Marylanders supporting same-sex marriage. In May 2018, a ban on conversion therapy on minors was signed into law by the Governor, and it became effective on October 1, 2018.
