VA: Not Safe to be Gay

Today, the Republican Governor of VA, by executive order, stated that "sexual orientation" is not allowed to be part of the "non-discrimination" policy of the state government.

Having been denied tenure at a major institution of higher education because I am gay, I know how this one feels.

Now a person who is gay can be fired for being gay and have no recourse. A person can be investigated for being gay and be fired.

No person who is gay and hired by the state of VA is safe.


"Virginia is for lovers?"

I think not.
