My friend, Donna Simone Plamondon at TransMaryland requested that this be re-posted.
Our Transgender brothers and sisters in Maryland are down to the wire with Maryland House Bill 235. HB235 offers Transgender non-discrimination in housing, employment, and health, BUT does not offer protections in public accommodations.
In other words, our brothers and sisters can get a job, a home, and a doctor but they cannot pee in peace.
You can show your support by joining TransMaryland on Facebook, liking their page, and writing to Equality Maryland to let them know how you feel about throwing Transgender folks in Maryland under the bus, again with a half-baked piece of legislation of which there is no guarantee of ever being corrected!
