Gerald Bostock’s is one of the landmark LGBTQ discrimination cases SCOTUS will soon hear. He recently told Tim Zeeman of The Daily Beast that he wants to “ensure nobody goes to work in fear of losing their job.”

In 2013, Bostock was suddenly fired by Clayton County. Bostock claims it was because he is gay, the firing coming after it was revealed to colleagues that he played for a local gay softball league. He was also subject to homophobic slurs, he claims, reports The Daily Beast.

Now Bostock’s case is one of three historic LGBTQ discrimination cases that will be heard at the Supreme Court on Oct. 8.
