In a stunning blow to the Trump Administration, the Supreme Court ruled today that LGBTQ+ people cannot be discriminated against within the workplace. In a near unanimous ruling, the justices ruled that previously published rulings on the unlawfulness of sex discrimination also cover in full LGBTQ people and their right to identify how they feel.

The justices in a 6-3 ruling cited that Title VII, a key part of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, indeed protests people from being discriminated against in the workplace.

 “An employer who fires an individual for being homosexual or transgender fires that person for traits or actions it would not have questioned in members of a different sex,” Justice Neil Gorsuch wrote for the court. “Sex plays a necessary and undisguisable role in the decision, exactly what Title VII forbids.”
