I'm a contractor. What if I encounter sexual orientation discrimination at a company I'm doing a job in?

The law on sexuality discrimination covers discrimination against contractors. As long as you are contracted to do work personally, you would have a case against the contracting organisation if you were treated unfairly on grounds of your sexuality, even if that organisation was not your employer.
