About NYS Laws

New York State has statewide non-discrimination and hate crimes laws that explicitly include actual and perceived sexual orientation, gender and/or sex, and other categories. While New York still needs to pass a statewide transgender civil rights law, there is currently some legal protection from gender identity and expression discrimination in New York, both under state law and a good number of local ordinances. And of course, New York has a marriage equality law.

If you feel you have been discriminated against, or for more information on discrimination protection in New York State, click HERE.
