ON TRANSGENDER RIGHTS
April 24, 2007
Chemistry Building, Lecture Hall 2
One of the top 2007 legislative priorities for LGBTQ rights organizations in Maryland was adding protection for transgender Marylanders in the state's anti-discrimination laws. Despite majority support in both the House and Senate the legislation was defeated by one vote in committee.
Join us to discuss what happened in Annapolis and where we go from here. We will be joined by the bill's sponsors, Delegate Adrienne Jones and Senator Lisa Gladden. Our special guest is Julie Nemecek, the Michigan college professor who was recently fired when she came out as transgender. Additional speakers are Steve Glassman, Chairman of the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission, and David Noble, Political Director, National Gay and Lesbian Task Force.
