Hawaii Trans Protections Almost Here

Hawaii Trans Protections Almost Here


The Hawaii house of representatives overwhelmingly passed legislation Tuesday that would make workplace discrimination against transgender people illegal.

The house passed the protections with a 45-4 vote, reports the Washington Blade. The senate has already passed matching legislation; the bill now heads to Democratic governor Neil Abercrombie, who has vowed to sign it. Hawaii already has protections for transgender people in housing and accommodations. In related news, Nevada's general assembly passed protections for transgender workers on Monday.
