Tarrant County College (TCC) and former professor Jacqueline Gill have agreed to settle the federal discrimination lawsuit Lambda Legal brought against TCC on Gill's behalf. The suit claimed that TCC officials discriminated against Gill because of her sexual orientation.
Q. I just applied for a new job, and am not sure if I should be “out” during the interview process. I don’t think my state protects employees from being discriminated against based on their sexual orientation. Can I be out at my interview or at work without risk of being rejected or fired?
