Executive Order on Preventing and Combating Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Sexual Orientation | The White House

On January 20, 2021, President Biden issued an Executive Order, entitled, "Executive Order on Preventing and Combating Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Sexual Orientation". The full text can be found here: https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/presidential-actions/2021/01/20/executive-order-preventing-and-combating-discrimination-on-basis-of-gender-identity-or-s*xual-orientation/
This Executive Order has positively impacted the federal Fair Housing Act by broadening the scope of protections under the act on the basis of s*xual discrimination in the housing market. His Executive Order helps promote the recognition of all types of s*xual discrimination that can occur, in addition to, not in place of biological gender assigned at birth. Since Alabama does not have it's own fair housing act, the federal act provides the only fair housing-specific protections in Alabama. Now, thanks to President Biden's inclusive approach to statutory interpretation, discrimination in housing on the basis of gender identity and/or s*xual orientation is now, and has been since this executive order was signed, prohibited in the State of Alabama!

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows: Section 1. Policy. Every person should be treated with respect and dignity and should be able to live without fear, no matter who they are or whom they love...
