- Laws in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Vermont explicitly protect you from discrimination or harassment in public school based on your actual or perceived sexual orientation, gender identity, sex or HIV status.
- Federal law also protects you from discrimination based on your sex or HIV status at any school that receives federal funding no matter where you live. And in many cases, protection against sex discrimination can protect against discrimination based on gender identity or expression and sometimes against sexual orientation discrimination.
- Remember that no matter where you go to school, you have a right to be safe. See Bullying, and contact GLAD Answers if you are experiencing any discrimination, bullying or harassment.
