Empire State Pride Agenda To Close Despite GENDA Bill Not Being Passed To Protect Trans* New Yorkers
Thursday, November 12, 2015
Being an "ally" does not mean distastefully hijacking a funeral of which you're not invited - it means asking the community what THEY want and need and act accordingly
actually would make sense would be if the LAPD did a march to honor all the
unarmed women and men killed by law enforcement, not only would this be a way to
show the residents of Los Angeles their compassion for the loss of human life
at the hands of police officers – it wouldn’t be infringing on an already
established ritual of mourning without the stakeholder’s (the local trans
community and the families of deceased trans women) consent.
Is it too much to ask that the LAPD not use the loved ones we have as props in some disingenuous political campaign?

Eric Holder Announces Trans Americans Are In Fact Protected From Discrimination Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
Don't you Just love it when the Justice Department stands for Justice?!
“I have determined that the best reading of Title VII’s prohibition of sex discrimination is that it encompasses discrimination based on gender identity, including transgender status. This important shift will ensure that the protections of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 are extended to those who suffer discrimination based on gender identity, including transgender status. This will help to foster fair and consistent treatment for all claimants. And it reaffirms the Justice Department’s commitment to protecting the civil rights of all Americans.”
