Time to trump transgender discrimination

Monday, July 31, 2017 Emma Simpson 2

Right now there is a bill in the works that would give transgender people in NH more legal protection by extending an anti-discrimination law that relates to age, sex, sexual orientation, race or creed to gender identity. Unfortunately, the bill (HB 478) has been tabled twice, but more action is already underway, and there are plans to resurrect the bill in the near future. READ MORE

Being an ally simply means that you are willing to be a decent human being and not judge someone because of how they identify, and that you are willing to let people who are discriminated against because of who they are share the spotlight a little, which is so important and meaningful, especially during pride month.

Talking Transgender: What Trump’s repeal means for NH’s transgender students

Here in New Hampshire, lawmakers are seriously considering passing a bill that would ultimately serve to protect transgender individuals in our community by including them in the state’s anti-discrimination laws.
