Maryland’s Gender Identity Protection Bill

9 03 2009


I always liked the flag of Maryland, didn’t you?
Via Maryland Wire:

A Maryland Senate panel is scheduled to hear testimony on a measure that would prohibit discrimination against transgender people.

The bill is sponsored by Montgomery County Senator Richard Madaleno Jr. and would protect transgender residents from discrimination in housing, employment and public accommodations. Testimony will be heard on Wednesday.

Thirteen states, Washington, D.C., Baltimore and 90 other local jurisdictions including Montgomery County, have banned discrimination against transgender people, according to the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force.

Here’s the bill itself.

Hard to believe Cincinnati is ahead of Maryland, isn’t it?

Meanwhile, a woman was killed and two more were injured just outside of DC while leaving a lesbian bar called Coconuts Cafe. One step forward, one step back.
