Sexual Orientation Policy Tally

The term “sexual orientation” is loosely defined as a person’s pattern of romantic or sexual attraction to people of the opposite sex or gender, the same sex or gender, or more than one sex or gender. Laws that explicitly mention sexual orientation primarily protect or harm lesbian, gay, and bisexual people. That said, transgender people who are lesbian, gay or bisexual can be affected by laws that explicitly mention sexual orientation.

Gender Identity Policy Tally

“Gender identity” is a person’s deeply-felt inner sense of being male, female, or something else or in-between. “Gender expression” refers to a person’s characteristics and behaviors such as appearance, dress, mannerisms and speech patterns that can be described as masculine, feminine, or something else. Gender identity and expression are independent of sexual orientation, and transgender people may identify as heterosexual, lesbian, gay or bisexual. Laws that explicitly mention “gender identity” or “gender identity and expression” primarily protect or harm transgender people. These laws also can apply to people who are not transgender, but whose sense of gender or manner of dress does not adhere to gender stereotypes.

  • 100% of state population is protected from employment discrimination based on gender identity (statewide protection)
  • 50-99% of state population is protected from employment discrimination based on gender identity through local ordinances (see note)
  • 25-49% of state population is protected from employment discrimination based on gender identity through local ordinances (see note)
  • 1-24% of state population is protected from employment discrimination based on gender identity through local ordinances (see note)
  • 0% state population is protected from employment discrimination based on gender identity through local ordinances (see note)
  • State explicitly bans cities and counties from passing nondiscrimination provisions (see note)

Only jurisdictions with ordinances that prohibit discrimination in private employment are listed. Other localities may have executive orders that apply to government employees and these are not listed. The level of enforcement of these ordinances may vary by jurisdiction. As a result of a 2012 Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) ruling, the federal sex discrimination law, Title VII, now protects employees nationwide from discrimination on the basis of gender identity and expression. By contrast, this map looks at state and local laws and ordinances that explicitly protect workers from discrimination based on their gender identity.
