HRC has given Phoenix a perfect score since 2012 when the city made it unlawful to discriminate based on sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability.
The policy was put in place by former Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery after a state law legalized gay marriage in 2015.
A 6-3 landmark decision by the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of LGBTQ workers being protected from job discrimination.
Despite the Supreme Court recently strengthening LGBTQ protections in the workplace, healthcare discrimination is still possible in Arizona.
