Hello and welcome.
Unless you experienced harassment on the basis of your sexual preference, what you describe probably does not amount to a civil rights violation. You could report this as a HIPAA violation if the information that was shared could be construed as constituting "medical information" (which I'm not sure would be the case. However, under HIPAA you cannot sue for money damages, you can only report the violation to the Dept. of Health & Human Services. They will investigate and may choose to fine your employer. Other than this, what happened was highly unfortunate but probably not anything that gives rise to any legal remedies.
If I can clarify anything at all for you, please do not hesitate to ask. It is my pleasure to assist you further if necessary....
