NH Town Sued for Discriminating Against HIV Group Home

A Boston-based LGBT advocacy group is suing a New Hampshire town to stop its closure of a group home for people with HIV/AIDS and hepatitis C, The Associated Press (AP) reports. Gilsum is being sued by Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders (GLAD) on behalf of AIDS Services for the Monadnock Region to prevent the town from closing the Cleve Jones Wellness House for not paying property taxes. Five people live in the group home. GLAD claims the group home is tax exempt. GLAD admits the home had failed to file its application for the exemption. However, GLAD asserts that when the home finally did file, the town refused to approve the late application, although it routinely grants exemptions to nonprofits that file late or not at all.
