Equality Virginia, tracking this bill in Photosynthesis, notes:

This bill makes clear that discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity is against the public policy of the Commonwealth and provides a cause of action for such discrimination by private employers and by state and local agencies. Equality Virginia supports this bill.
