ENDA Win In House, Minus Trans Protection



Can't let yesterday's news about the Employment Non-Discrimination Act winning in the House go without mention. It was an emotional evening and a tremendous success for the gay and lesbian community.

BUT, not including our transgender brothers and sisters is a real shame. We've really gotten to a point where protections for gays and lesbians is appreciated and necessary (including in South Carolina), but transgender people are the ones who need protection the most. And considering how long it took to get these rights for gays and lesbians, I have my doubts that we'll ever see the law expanded again.

The fight continues.
