Breaking: NY Legislature Passes GENDA, Bans Conversion Therapy

January 15, 2019

Congratulations New York!

Amazing, historic news for LGBTQ New Yorkers! Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act (GENDA) passed today in New York as well as legislation banning conversion therapy. According to the HRC, “the bill has passed the New York Assembly 11 times, and today marks the first time it has passed both chambers. Both bills will now head to Governor Andrew Cuomo’s desk to be signed.”

GENDA adds gender identity as a protected class in the areas of housing, employment, and public accommodations. “Today’s historic action in New York is the result of years of hard work and it is a vivid illustration of the importance of electing pro-equality lawmakers,” said HRC President Chad Griffin. “Due to the efforts of countless advocates and leaders, transgender New Yorkers will now be explicitly protected from discrimination on the basis of gender identity and LGBTQ youth will be protected from the dangerous, debunked practice of so-called ‘conversion therapy.’ This is a monumental day for fairness and equality across the Empire State.”

Congratulations New York!
