KEY POLICY ISSUES
Gender Expression Equality: GLID supports passage of the Gender Expression Non-discrimination Act (GENDA), a bill that that would outlaw discrimination in New York State based on gender identity or expression. Currently, it is legal in most parts of New York to be terminated from a job, kicked out of your home, denied credit or public accommodations (such as service in a restaurant) simply for being transgender. GENDA would also expand the State’s hate crimes law to explicitly include crimes against transgender people.
Protection & Support of LGBT Youth: We support expanded protection and support for New York’s LGBT youth, who suffer from vastly increased rates of bullying, dropping out of school, substance abuse, homelessness and suicide.
LGBT Surrogacy Rights: Expand parenthood options for the LGBT community and other New Yorkers by legalizing surrogacy. New York is one of only four states in the nation where surrogacy is completely banned.
GLID Annual Fundraising Event: Every spring GLID puts on an annual fundraiser to raise funds to support club activities and to recognize community leaders, activists, elected officials and labor leaders for their work in support of LGBT Equality. We hope you will join us this year on Thursday June 12th, 2014 at Churrascaria Plataforma (316 W. 49th Street) from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm.
