A bill to prohibit discrimination against transgender people in Delaware faces a vote in the Senate today after clearing a Senate committee.

The legislation would grant the protections of the state’s existing non-discrimination law to transgender Delawareans, or people who identify as a gender different than their birth sex.

That could include people who dress or live as the opposite sex or both sexes, or who undergo medical treatment to change their gender.

The bill would ban discrimination in employment, housing, insurance and public accommodations based on “gender identity.”
