More than 1,500 New Yorkers gathered today in Manhattan to mourn the death of a 32 year-old gay man, who was shot down on Friday just blocks away from the historic Stonewall Inn in an apparent act of anti-gay bias.
Nevada Governor Considers Transgender-inclusive Non-discrimination Bill
The legislature in Nevada has passed a bill that would protect people based on gender identity and expression from discrimination in the workplace. The bill is now being considered by Governor Brian Sandoval, a Republican. It’s unclear what his position on the bill is.
In 2009, the legislature passed domestic partnership legislation over the veto of a Republican Governor, but supporters aren't sure whether the legislature would have sufficient numbers to over ride a governor’s veto on the workplace discrimination bill.
