Trulia announced a new service that gives LGBT house hunters a new tool for evaluating prospective homes. The Local Legal Protections tool shows "what legal protections exist for individuals who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, or Transgender (LGBTi) in the jurisdiction of any prospective for-sale home."

"The Local Legal Protections feature highlights what laws are in place to protect fair and equal treatment in housing, employment, and public accommodations based on sexual orientation and gender identity," adds the press release announcing the new tool.

The Local Legal Protections tool has a counterpart in the recently launched Destination Pride website, which offers similar data for prospective travelers.
