Nebraska

Nebraska is the 37th U.S. state, admitted to the Union on March 1, 1867. Its most populous city is Omaha, and the state capitol is located in Lincoln.

LGBT Rights in Nebraska: A constitutional ban on same-sex marriage was approved by voters in November 2000. No provision of Nebraska law explicitly addresses discrimination on the bases of sexual orientation or gender identity. Nebraska's hate crimes law covers hate crimes based on sexual orientation but not those based on gender identity. Nebraska permits adoption by individuals, and there are no explicit prohibitions on adoption by same-sex couples.
