The Wyoming Senate defeated Senate Bill 131 on Thursday with a 13-15 vote, which would have created statewide nondiscrimination protections based on sexual orientation and gender identity. Wyoming remains one of 29 states where it’s perfectly legal to fire someone for being gay and one of 34 states where it’s perfectly legal to fire someone for being trans. This defeat, combined with the House’s two votes defeating same-sex marriage and domestic partnerships, suggests there will be no advances for LGBT equality in “The Equality State” this year.
