Openly gay Representative Jared Polis is supporting several LGBT-equality bills this year, including two bills related to youth.
As some readers are likely aware, members of Congress have recently introduced important legislation affecting the LGBT community.
I hope to blog more in-depth about the legislation in the near future. In the meantime, I’ve added a page about federal legislation to the Resources section of this website. This new page, which I’ll continue to expand, now includes basic information about the Student Non-Discrimination Act, the Safe Schools Improvement Act, and the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, along with links to additional resources related to those bills.
The new page also includes an optimistic statement from Freedom to Work’s Tico Almeida about the prospects for the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) in the Senate this year. The Senate last voted on ENDA in 1996, when it failed on a vote of 49-50. Stayed tuned for additional updates.
