Sexual orientation is a protected characteristic under Section 75 of the Northern Ireland Act 1998.
You are covered by the law if you are gay, lesbian, bisexual (LGB) or straight.
The law also covers individuals who are treated worse than others due to incorrect assumptions about their sexual orientation or because they associate with people of a particular sexual orientation.
