State Sen. William Stachowski's reported announcement he would support the Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act would secure enough votes for it to pass in the New York State Senate, but it remains unclear whether lawmakers would actually vote on the bill before the end of the legislative session on June 21.

They already do. It's in the constitution, something about "...race, CREED or color...". You've been protected from the very beginning. Trans folks, however, are not. This is a good move for the state. So far not a single negative incident has come from an area where this is now law.

If this bill passes the Senate, Gov Paterson will sign it and an injustice inflicted on the gender variant community of New York State in 2002 will finally be rectified. As a lifelong NY state resident I will celebrate the day it happens for the rest of my life.

This bill is VITALLY NEEDED by a much maligned and severely discriminated against minority. It is hardly a waste of time to protect and expand civil rights and liberties or their protection.

With the lollygagging in Congress regarding the Employment Non Discrimination Act (ENDA) this bill becomes doubly important. Justice delayed is justice denied. If you live in NY, write, email and call your state senator and strongly urge them to say YES to S2406, the Gender Expression Non Discrimination Act (GENDA).
