The Supreme Court reviewed three court cases where the employers terminated employees because the employees were homosexual or transgender.

Gerald Bostock was terminated for conduct “unbecoming” a county employee when it was found that Gerald played in a gay softball league. Donald Zarda was fired after he mentioned being gay. Aimee Stephens presented herself as a male when she was hired. She was fired when she informed her employer she planned to “live and work full-time as a woman.” The Supreme Court ruled that it’s impossible to discriminate against a person for being homosexual or transgender without discriminating against that individual based on sex.
