It’s not just focusing on gay and lesbian partnership rights anymore
I mean look at this
“It will make city forms gender neutral, and makes it easier for transgender residents to request gender markers on some records, and name changes. Gender-neutral bathrooms are also required in city-controlled buildings, as well as access to buildings based on gender identity.
“Healthcare discrimination against non-union transgender city employees will also be banned, and the legislation ensures that employees in Philadelphia will be able to dress in accordance with their gender identity.”
No one’s ever cared before and now it is just like “here is a windfall of unexpectedly amazing things now go live your life in happiness”
Way to go Philly!
WHY IS NO ONE TALKING ABOUT THIS.
GET ‘EM, MIKE!
and i like and appreciate that the discourse is changing from the dismissive “idc who somebody sleeps with” to a whole gang of aspects of life discriminated against/made harder by one’s sexuality/gender
