Sexual Orientation

Whether a person's sexual attraction is towards their own sex, the opposite sex or to both sexes.

Sexual orientation discrimination is when you are treated differently because of your sexual orientation.

The treatment could be a one-off action or as a result of a rule or policy based on sexual orientation. It doesn’t have to be intentional to be unlawful.
