Urge Maryland's Governor to Push for Transgender Anti-Discrimination Legislation

From Equality Maryland Take Action

Governor O'Malley's leadership can make the difference in the House and Senate Committees passing transgender anti-discrimination legislation this year. Transgender people experience bias far too often in employment, housing, healthcare, and public accommodations. When discrimination prevents or hinders a person from gaining or keeping employment, many other problems develop. Rent doesn't get paid, which leads to eviction. Data shows that 42% of transgender people in the DC Metro Area are unemployed and 19% do not have their own living space. Transgender individuals may also be denied access to social services like shelters or rape crisis centers; refused treatment, ridiculed, or denied recognition of their gender identity by health care professionals; or refused service at restaurants or stores.

"Jennifer Gale" blood drive Twin Cities Criminal Defames Gay and Transexual people

Reported by My Fox Twin Cities Video found top right or at this link

Fake posters found in the Twin Cities area purportedly seeking donors for a Red Cross blood drive intentionally defamed both Gay and Transgender people. Fox news correctly reported a 'Derogatory' term was used to describe gay men, but the name of the church, 'Jennifer Gale' was not recognized by Fox news as defamatory towards transgender people.

The author of this poster intentionally choose to use the name of a recently deceased homeless transgender activist so as to include transgender people in this insulting message.
