The New York Governor Andrew Cuomo wants the state to prohibit discrimination against transgender people.

It was in a letter he sent to the Empire State Pride Agenda that the Governor Cuomo said the law protecting against discrimination should include the gender identity and expression.

He also wrote that if elected for a second term, he would try to protect against discrimination based on gender identity and expression of a person in employment and housing.

Cuomo has already launched a working group to collect data on LGBT people from New York to improve services.
