GRAPHIC: 23 States Without Gay Civil Rights

There are 23 states where you can be fired for being transgender, gay or lesbian without any legal recourse under state law. If Congress were to pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, that would produce a federal law that would prohibit anti-LGBT employment discrimination. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has ruled that transgender employment discrimination is illegal due to Title IX of the 1964 Civil Rights Act inclusion of "sex" as a category.
