I'm doing a research project on the topic of anti-discrimination laws, but not in terms of employment. Rather, I'm trying to research anti-discrimination against customers. Would anyone happen to know how artists and those that are commissioned for work fall under these laws? I haven't been able to find anything about that. If the customer is refused service based on the content they want, even if it's a mundane, personal reason from the person they're commissioning, is it illegal? Also, under what constitutional guidelines are artists protected from being forced to make art under? I ask this because generally, artists can simply refuse offers for any reason. How does that work?
