Morals are constantly changing. In practical terms, it is known and acknowledged that there has always been different sexual orientation, but now they are accepted by our society. For centuries and still true even today to a lesser extent that homosexuality is subjected to very strict laws that were heavily penalized before. Nowadays only adoption and marriage is a subject of discussion in France. Society and public opinion are much more tolerant since it may be called as 'sexual revolution'. Morals are constantly changing in practical terms and it is known as well as acknowledged that it has always been different for sexual orientations, but now they are just being accepted by our society. The 'sexual revolution' (late 1960s and early 1970s) is defined by the changing sexual behavior particularly in the West. This movement is mainly influenced by the sexual emancipation of women, the assertion of gender equality and the recognition of non-procreative sexuality and non-marital issues. Several factors helped to make this revolution such as: the distribution of condoms after the 30s, treatment of STDs (sexually transmitted diseases) and the distribution of various contraceptive devices (IUD's invention in 1928, and the discovery of the contraceptive pill in the 1950s). In the West, it allowed women to get progressive legislative equality: getting the right to vote, that is to say, the opportunity to participate in reforms that affect them. It was also during this period there appeared law for equality in marriage, the right to contraception and abortion rights. Moreover, if the sexual act was risky, leading to the possibility of an unwanted pregnancy, the risk of STD was considerably reduced. It is within this context that the sexual revolution is growing, we speak of 'free love'. Recently, the authorization given by the Administrative Court of Besancon in the adoption of a child by a homosexual couples brings an additional element to the evolution of gay rights in France. It is found that there is a real desire to change the situation for LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transsexual) in France. At the beginning of this report we note that the court create rules to protect people with different sexual orientation. Moreover, the evolution of morals allows LGBT people feel accepted by society in increasing number by many movements and organizations set up for them. The annual events such as 'Gay Pride' Pride march, takes part in this development. Thanks to the many laws in place that allows LGBT to have a legal status recognized by its peers. However, we can notice as a response to our record many problems are still present in companies. Our problem on focus in this work is: how sexual orientation may be a source of discrimination?
