"Americans show strong public support for non-discrimination laws. In 2008, Gallup found that 89% of Americans support 'equal rights in terms of job opportunities' for lesbians and gay men."

It also highlights non-discrimination policies and ultimately summarizes why transgender people should be protected with regard to employment, housing, and public accommodations.
