Transgender groups will host a community action day at the State House to push for public accommodation protections for transgender youth, adults and family. The Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition and the Transgender Equal Rights Coalition say they are hosting the action Thursday to educate legislators about the necessity of protections in establishments open to the general public. Those include health care facilities, public transit and bus stations, hotels, motels, campsites, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, convention centers, museums, libraries and galleries. The groups say transgender youth and adults encounter unfair treatment, denying of services, mocking or hostile language, and threats of harm when accessing public services.
