Will sexual orientation become protected?

Ann Arbor Democratic Sen. Rebekah Warren introduced a bill on Tuesday that would prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

SB 1063 identifies gender identity or expression as “having or being perceived as having a gender-related self-identity or expression whether or not associated with an individual’s assigned sex at birth.”

The bill, if adopted, would also protect sexual orientation, which is “having an orientation for heterosexuality, homosexuality, bisexuality, or having a history of such an orientation or being identified with such an orientation.”
