As the Maryland General Assembly considers SB449‚ÄĒthe Fairness for All Marylanders Act of 2013‚ÄĒthat would ban discrimination in employment, housing, credit and public accommodations on the basis of gender identity or expression, the Baltimore County chapter of PFLAG will devote its Feb. 26 meeting to understanding transgender issues.
Sharon Brackett, board chair of Gender Rights Maryland, will present ‚ÄúTrans 101,‚ÄĚ an introductory speech on transgender issues in our society and in our area. She will define basic terms and answer general questions, as well as provide more detailed explanations of the specific implications of being a gender non-conforming individual.
The meeting will take place from 7-9 p.m. at the Towson Unitarian Universalist Church, 1710 Dulaney Valley Rd., Baltimore. For more information, visit pflagbaltimore.org or call 443-255-1484.
The chapter was instrumental in the passage of a gender identity non-discrimination bill in Baltimore County last year.
