Here is the text of Virginia Executive Order #1:
Gov. McDonnell's Executive Order No. 6 had failed to include sexual orientation in the list of categories, eliminating the protections that state workers had previously enjoyed. McDonnell had falsely claimed such protections were unnecessary but deliberately issued a new executive order excluding them to promote his heterosexual supremacist agenda for the state. The Virginia Legislature has repeatedly failed to pass a measure that would ban employment discrimination against LGBT people in the state. Of course, if the U.S. House would pass the Employment Non-Discrmination Act (ENDA) like the U.S. Senate did then federal law would protect LGBT workers from discrimination.
Thanks to the election of 2013 and Gov. Terry McAuliffe keeping his promises LGBT state employees are now protected from discrimination in Virginia.
