There are so many important issues of equality facing the LGBTQ* community. Currently, the focus remains on the fight for marriage equality. Another important battle has been sitting in the background waiting to be pushed to the forefront: employment protections. According to the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), only 16 states and DC have laws in place protecting workers from discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. Another five states have protections against discrimination based on sexual orientation, but not gender identity (“Statewide…”).

Exploring Gender: Trans* News Updates

gender neutral

 

Almost every day, I spend at least 30 minutes in research for these articles. Generally a bit more than that, looking through Google news, the trans* tag on tumblr, the Huffington Post. I find so many interesting articles, some great news, some not so great news. But I cannot write about it all, so here is an overview of recent news including a trans*man in New York who was never notified of his cancer diagnosis and then was denied care, UC Berkeley making its new residence hall trans* inclusive, the FAA stopping psychological testing to certify trans* pilots, and the APA issuing a statement in support of trans* rights.

 Anoka-Hennepin

From now on, the school district of Anoka-Hennepin in Minnesota doesn't require teachers to remain neutral concerning the sexual orientation anymore. It should help to stop LGBT bullying.
