Maryland State Seal

On Wednesday, March 9, the Maryland House of Delegates Health and Government Operations Committee is scheduled to hold a hearing on a bill that would prohibit discrimination on the basis of gender identity in the state.  The Gender Identity Anti-Discrimination bill, House Bill 235, was introduced on Jan. 27.

Equality Maryland is leading the effort in support of passage of the bill.  Visit their site for more information on their efforts.
