The Maryland House of Delegates today passed a bill that would ban anti-transgender discrimination in employment, housing, credit and public accommodations. The Senate passed the bill earlier this month, and Gov. Martin O’Malley has said he plans to sign it into law.
“I’d like to congratulate and thank Senator Rich Madaleno, Delegate Luke Clippinger, Equality Maryland and the Human Rights Campaign on yet another victory for inclusion and openness in our State,” O’Malley said. “We’re proud to stand with these leaders, the LGBT community, and other allies to complete this major piece of unfinished business — ensuring that everyone is protected from discrimination under the law. I look forward to signing this bill.”
With his signature, O’Malley will make his state the 18th plus the District of Columbia to enact such protections.
WOOHOO! Thank you, Marylanders, for doing the right thing to protect your citizens. It’s a great day.

"I have homosexuals in my family. I’m here out of love and concern for the health of these people,"

The Louisiana House yesterday voted to uphold an unconstitutional state ban on sodomy — essentially political jargon for gay sex — as part of its “crimes against nature” law.
In Lawrence v. Texas in 2003, the Supreme Court ruled that sodomy bans are unconstitutional. But a handful of states, including Louisiana, refuse to change their anti-sodomy laws. While the statute technically can’t be used as a basis to arrest people, Louisiana deputies have reportedly made sodomy-related arrests recently, inciting a lawmaker to try to repeal it.
Against all logic or reason, on Tuesday, the state House voted 66-27 to keep the anti-sodomy law in place.
In a letter urging Louisiana lawmakers to reject the proposal, the influential Christian lobbying organization wrote, “Louisiana’s anti-sodomy statute is consistent with the values of Louisiana residents who consider this behavior to be dangerous, unhealthy, and immoral.”
In a hearing earlier this month, Bill Smith, a member of the Louisiana Family Forum, told committee members that anti-sodomy laws save the lives of gay people by decreasing their exposure to HIV.
"I have homosexuals in my family. I’m here out of love and concern for the health of these people," Smith said in April. “The fact is this opens up ways for them to really kill themselves.”
