LGBTQ Employment

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Respect for LGBT employees is clearly demonstrated by the inclusiveness of policies in place here in the City of Virginia Beach. Our city prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation in our hiring policies, and we believe that it is a fundamental principle that employees should be judged on their ability to perform the responsibilities of their position, and not who they are or whom they love. As such, our organization requires inclusion and diversity training for every staff member that includes LGBT specific discussion.

We welcome you to apply for our open positions, and we hope to see you at some of the recruiting events for the community, including our recruiting booth each year at Hampton Roads Pride events. Once on board, please join our LGBT+ Gay Straight Alliance or our Inclusion and Diversity Council that are working towards providing better services and resources for our employees and the overall community of Virginia Beach.

The City of Virginia Beach health plan includes gender reassignment coverage as follows: 

Procedures and services related to gender reassignment, including gender affirming surgeries, hormone replacement therapy and other therapy or counseling which may be part of transition-related care, are covered when medical necessity criteria and required clinical indicates are met.  As with any other major medical procedure, pre-certification by the plan is required.
