Although there are few explicit federal laws, aside of an executive order by Bill Clinton, forbidding discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity, 21 states have enacted laws banning sexual orientation and gender identity in some form or other. The states that have enacted laws against sexual orientation discrimination are Colorado, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington, and Wisconsin. The District of Columbia also prohibits sexual orientation and gender identity discrimination. Furthermore, many cities have also enacted laws against sexual orientation discrimination.

Not only is it illegal to make employment decisions, but it is also illegal to make employment decisions based on perceived sexual orientation. Thus, if an employer fires someone because of “gay” behavior then that is also illegal.

Sexual orientation discrimination is also closely linked with gender identity discrimination. Some, but not all, states that have banned sexual orientation discrimination have also enacted laws forbidding gender identity discrimination. If a person who is biologically female identifies her gender as male, it is illegal in certain states to discriminate against that person in employment issues.
