Kentucky Governor bans discrimination for sexual orientation/gender identity

Two years ago, the governor of Kentucky retracted an executive order prohibiting discrimination against state employees on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. Of particular note when I blogged about it at the time was the governor's contention that he was retracting protections for gay employees because it was too difficult to provide protections for transgender employees. This was an attempt to drive a wedge between gay and transgender advocates. The new governor has reinstated the policy, though he has declined to discuss it at this time, hinting that there will be more on this later: The Equality Party: Kentucky Governor bans discrimination for sexual orientation/gender identity
