Hello,
I'm in need of help . My husband and I are married in Germany . I'm an American and he is German . We got married in Germany and now being that I'm a
Department of defense commissary agency  employee ( i work for the usa army europe ) It has come time for me return to the USA . I can not get a green card for him due to DOMA . It all started march 18, 2011 my husband and I got married then 8 day later I was told by my grocery manager that I wouldn't be given an over seas tour extension, no reason was given and after talking to the store deputy ( who I told about my problem in detail) he said that he was told that a reason doesn't need to be given to me. I have made 2 EEO complaints dealing with discrimination and harassment. Because Deca ( commissary ) refused to. Help me in my problem . I was told that it was my fault for marrying a local national ( my husband is German) I should have thought about the consiquences before hand. Since then I have been fired while on sick leave . While fighting to keep my family together and to get my job back I still suffer from my work related sickness . I wait for help from any legal group willing to help us . My email is centilyen@yahoo.com

Have a look onto www.lgbti.de, there you can get a website certification and seal of approval for your personal website if free of any discrimination

Germany still treats same-sex partnerships and heterosexual marriages differently, but the EU's top court says married couples or those in registered partnerships must get the same pension benefits. see: http://www.dw-world.de/dw/article/0,,15066843,00.html

LGBTI rights are human rights

Useful information about LSVD's human rights foundation, the Hirschfeld-Eddy-Foundation

Through international networking and cooperation with partner organizations in the Global South and Eastern Europe, the Hirschfeld-Eddy-Foundation provides direct assistance for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersexual (LGBTI) people being threatened.

We support national and international LGBTI-Human-Rights-Campaigns by providing information, raising public awareness and building alliances. We constantly work to convince those responsible for foreign policy, development cooperation and human rights policy. We support the work of human rights advocates and promote campaigns against homophobia and prosecution.

The Hirschfeld-Eddy-Foundation was founded in 2007 as the human rights foundation of the Lesbian and Gay Federation, Germany.
