Supreme Court Rules Civil Rights Law Protects Gay and Transgender Workers. The highest court in the land upholds the 1964 Civil Rights Act. "The case concerned Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which bars employment discrimination based on race, religion, national origin and sex. The question for the justices was whether that last prohibition - discrimination 'because of sex'- applies to many millions of gay and transgender workers." - NY Times 6/15/20
