Did you know that in Massachusetts, it's legal for a transgender person to be turned away from a hotel or denied service at a restaurant—simply because of who they are. That's because while state law prohibits discrimination against transgender people in employment and housing, there are no protections for gender identity under MA's public accommodation law.
That means in places everyone where any of us are when we're not at home, work or school – such as malls and restaurants, parks and government offices, transgender people face discrimination each and every day.
That's why I just joined Freedom Massachusetts in the campaign to pass legislation this year updating MA's non-discrimination law to ensure transgender people are protected in public accommodations. Will you join me by adding your name now?
