The Rainbow Times | The Freshest LGBT News in New England

The Rainbow Times | The Freshest LGBT News in New England: "Governor Deval Patrick issued an executive order that prohibits discrimination based on “gender identity or expression,” a move that provides transgender workers in state government with employment protections."

This is particularly good, in light of the apparent inability of the state legislature to pass a bill with such protections because of right-wing opposition that has employed gross distortions about transgender people. It's not a substitute, but it's a start. It will demonstrate that employment protections do not impair the safety of others, a ludicrous notion.
