some very good news!

I wanted to pass this along:

I read today on planetout.com that the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) has (finally!) stated that it will only support non-discrimination legislation that includes gender and gender expression in addition to sexual orientation. I for one am very glad that the HRC is finally being inclusive of trans people in word AND deed! They do such good work in other areas, especially in the area of info. gathering, but I always felt like if I supported them, it would kind of be a slap in the face to everyone who puts the "T" in LGBT.

Yay! this is good news!

Of course, the same article stated that there was little chance of passing such legislation this term with both houses of congress controlled by Republicans... another reason to get out the vote this November!
