Gay rights laws are civil rights laws consistent with the belief that all people are entitled to such necessities as employment, housing, and business services without fear of discrimination. Unfortunately, in many states, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people can be fired from their jobs and denied housing, credit, or insurance solely because of their sexual orientation, gender identity, and/or gender expression. Therefore, GLBT people need safeguards to prevent the discrimination that would limit or deny them opportunities to live equally with the rest of society.
