Has HRC learned its lesson? The gay group may not have supported trans folk during the ENDA debacle, but they’re now throwing their weight behind a trans-inclusive anti-discrimination law in Scottsdale. And they’re not alone:
The Human Rights Campaign and National Gay & Lesbian Task Force have joined local gay rights advocates, including Equality Arizona and the Arizona Transgender Alliance, in backing the measure. The state chapter of Sharpton’s National Action Network also is supporting the measure.
The ordinance would bar discrimination in employment, housing and other accommodations based on sexual orientation, gender identity as well as traditionally protected categories such as religion, gender, race and ethnicity.
Planned Parenthood and the ACLU are also joining the fight.
Gays, blacks, abortionists and free speech warriors joining forces? Social conservatives must be livid – and scared!
