I rented a apartment gave landlord 800 dollars she put it toward deposit 3 days later she gave me a 3 day and 30 day notice to pay the rent at that point she asked if my friend was in my apartment I said yes she hates him because he is openly gay she said she was told he was visiting me she said "I don't rent to faggots".5 days later I was served an unlawful detainer,she did not even give me the 30 days.Ifeel I was evicted really because of being gay . does this qualify as sexual descrimanation and what can I do?
