Houston Mayor Annise Parker has signed an executive order protecting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) city employees “at every level of municipal government” from discrimination and harassment based on their sexual orientation.
The order covers employees in all city offices and shops, but also city-run stadiums, parks and museums. It covers anyone doing business with the city, including Houston’s contractors and vendors, in addition to its employees.
Parker, who is a lesbian, issued the order, which covers gender identity and gender expression, on March 25. The order’s purpose “is to prohibit discrimination and/or retaliation on the basis of sexual orientation and/or gender identity at every level of municipal government, including hiring, contracting and/or access to city facilities and programs/activities.”
