I published a open letter to Catherine Hyde during our fight against Equality Maryland’s supported HB 235 . I wish she would have read that letter before making this video. I gather from this video she has not because nether she or her daughter made mention of the importance of public accommodations protections for trans people.
Catherine Hyde was duped by Equality Maryland into testifying for HB 235 encouraging legislators to pass the flawed legislation framed as a ‘non discrimination’ bill tragically stripped of public accommodations provisions.
I hope she and her daughter will listen to the energized transgender voice emerging from the inner city of Baltimore. These are voices of transgender people who because of there circumstances, un- and underemployed use public transportation even sometimes public restrooms because nothing else is available.
Catherine these people are the ones who have gone where your high school daughter has yet to venture X10. Listen to their voices.
