The Massachusetts Senate will debate SB 735 the long awaited floor vote on transgender non-discrimination protections in public accommodations on Thursday May 12th. This extremely long over due legislation will protect transgender citizens living or visiting Massachusetts from discrimination in public places like parks, hotels & restaurants. It’s been 10 years since nondiscrimination protections for transgender people were first introduced in Massachusetts that fell short of full trans equality which means that transgender residents & visitors have been living in the shadow of discrimination. We hope that Massachusetts lawmakers do the right thing & take the necessary steps to ensure our transgender community are treated fairly & equally under the law in the Commonwealth. Janson Wu GLAD Executive Director stated, “Transgender people in Massachusetts should not have to live in fear of unfair treatment or harm every time they leave their home or workplace. This past year has shown movement like never before towards ensuring everyone is treated fairly & equally under the law. This is a make or break moment in the campaign to protect transgender people in Massachusetts from discrimination in public places like parks, hotels & restaurants.” Massachusetts residents click here to rush a message to your senator right now telling them to vote YES on SB 735 this Thursday May 12th & support equal protections for transgender people who are proud to call Massachusetts their home.
