From The Wasshington Blade - Hyattsville City Council passes trans-inclusive non-discrimination ordinance

Every little step helps in getting awareness out there! Many of us know that recent court rulings have said that existing federal non-discrimination laws under Title VII cover gender identity for transgender people (http://www.eeoc.gov/federal/otherprotections.cfm). While ENDA and laws like this will formalize this and spell it out for the people who simply don't understand the law, what is equally important would be laws protecting privacy and access to public facilities.

Anyway, just a small note before sending you to some good news out of Maryland...
