This 2014 photo provided by Melissa Zarda is a selfie by her brother Donald Zarda with his plane in the background at the Wood County Airport Collins Field in Mineola, Texas. Zarda, was a gay skydiving instructor who is the subject of a sex discrimination ruling. He died three years ago in a wingsuit accident in Switzerland, but on Monday, Feb. 26, 2018, a federal appeals court in New York became the second one in the country to declare that U.S. anti-discrimination law protects employees from being fired over their sexual orientation. The decision involved Zarda, who was fired in 2010 from a skydiving job in Central Islip, N.Y., that required him to strap himself tightly to clients so they could jump in tandem from an airplane. To put one female student at ease about the physical contact, he said, he told her not to worry - he was gay. The school fired Zarda after the woman's boyfriend called to complain.
