The Supreme Court surprised everyone by interpreting the 1964 Civil Rights Act to prohibit discrimination in employment for LGTBQ employees. The decision was written Justice Gorsuch, who was appointed to the court by president Trump. This is what Gorsuch wrote:
In Title VII, Congress outlawed discrimination in the workplace on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. Today, we must decide whether an employer can fire someone simply for being homosexual or transgender. The answer is clear. An employer who fires an individual for being homosexual or transgender fires that person for traits or actions it would not have questioned in members of a different sex. Sex plays a necessary and undisguisable role in the decision, exactly what Title VII forbids.
