LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual or Transgender) Rights law is the branch of law that covers civil rights of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people. It also covers discrimination and refers to unfair treatment based on sexual orientation, or perceived sexual orientation that is protected by some federal laws and many state nondiscriminatory laws. Unfair treatment that occurs in the workplace, housing, public accommodations, education, voting rights, or criminal process may implicate anti discrimination laws, such as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Fair Housing Act, and the Voting Rights Act.
