Thanks for this blog entry goes to Cathy Brennan, Esq., whose blog, Gender Identity Watch is a valuable resource. We quote her blog:
"Grand Island City Council rejected Ordinance 9407 to protect people from being denied employment, housing, or public accommodation because of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
The ordinance would have defined “gender identity” as “the actual or perceived appearance, expression, identity, or behavior of a person as being male or female, whether or not that appearance, expression, identity, or behavior is different from that traditionally associated with the person’s designated sex at birth.”
