You need to consult with a local employment lawyer. Sexual orientation is not a protected class under federal law, but there may be some protections for you based on other facts.

As my colleague suggested, consult with a qualified employment lawyer. There are federal hate crime statutes, and may be state statutes that are protective of sexual harassment based upon sexual orientation. Good luck
