I have always opposed transgender ‘equality’ bills without public accommodation provisions. It’s the single most important thing in our daily lives. Without it we are subject to arbitrarly being thrown off a plane, out of a restaurant or bathroom because of our gender expression. It follows that a potential employyer would take that into consideration.
I opposed the bill passed in Massachusetts for that reason. Gunner Scott and I have had some bad blood over that bill and his accepting HRC’s seed money post ENDA years ago. But thats history, HRC is changing. So it’s time to back track to public accommodations in Massachusetts, which of course I fully support.
More power to MTPC in convincing legislators that trans people are now worthy of the most basic of human rights when months ago we were not. The details of the action day can be found at Glaad or the MTPC webpage.
