Legislation boosts Maryland’s rating with LGBTQ+ policy tracking think tank

While the 2024 session was a bit more understated on new legislative protections for Maryland’s LGBTQ+ population compared to previous years, a nationwide policy tracker reports that the state is creating a more LGBTQ+ friendly state based off recent legislation.

The Movement Advancement Project (MAP) follows the ever-changing policy landscape across the United States and how it affects the nation’s LGBTQ+ population. The independent, nonprofit think tank regularly updates a policy map to indicate which states the group deems safer for LGBTQ+ individuals and which have more hostile policies.

According to a recent update from the organization, the legislation passed in Maryland’s 2024 session boosted Maryland’s rating among states with laws that protect the LGBTQ+ community.
