"LGBT seniors may confront both age-related bias and anti-LGBT bias in the workplace, which can leave them even more vulnerable than those of their counterparts who share, and therefore face discrimination based on, only one of those characteristics."

This fact sheet from Lambda Legal details the issues that LGBT older adults face in the workforce. It breaks down federal, state and local legal protections, as well as information on taking legal action if you have suffered from employment discrimination.
