U.S. Supreme Court Rules LGBTQ+ Protected From Job Discrimination

WASHINGTON, DC – JUNE 15: Joseph Fons holding a Pride Flag, stands in front of the U.S. Supreme Court building after the court ruled that LGBTQ people can not be disciplined or fired based on their sexual orientation June 15, 2020 in Washington, DC. With Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Neil Gorsuch joining the Democratic appointees, the court ruled 6-3 that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 bans bias based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

In major LGBTQIAA+ news beyond biological anthropology, the Supreme Court ruled a combined ruling for three cases (Altitude Express v. ZardaBostock v. Clayton County, and Harris Funeral Homes v. EEOC) that LGBTQ individuals are protected from discrimination against sexual orientation and/or gender identity. The legal granting of this basic human right is long overdue but great news!
