On July 1, 2020, Virginia became the first state in the South to pass non-discrimination protections in housing, employment, public spaces, credit for LGBTQ Virginians.

This is a landmark achievement but there’s more to be done before LGBTQ Virginians have full, lived equality in the Commonwealth. For more in-depth information about your these new protections in 2020, check out Equality Virginia’s legal protections webpage.

Additionally, as of June 15, 2020, the Supreme Court ruled that it is illegal for employers to discriminate against LGBTQ people under federal law – this applies to companies that employ 15 people or more annually.
