In 2006, the State of Washington enacted the landmark Anderson-Murray anti-discrimination law to protect lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people from discrimination. The anti-discrimination law forbids sexual orientation and gender expression and identity discrimination in several critical areas:

  • Employment in state, municipal, and private workplaces with eight
    or more employees
  • Public accommodations, meaning places open to the public such as
    businesses that sell goods or services, recreational facilities,
    providers of medical services, and public schools
  • Housing and financial transactions such as real estate rental and
    sales, and applications for credit or insurance
