Texas steps up to the plate for equality

Thanks to PlanetTransgender (now blogrolled) for this...
House Bill 538 prohibits employers from discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.(Click here for HB538 Text)

The bill will incorporate sexual orientation and gender identity/expression into all existing labor code sections dealing with nondiscrimination, treating them equally with race, color, disability, religion, sex, national origin, or age
I figure I have at least one of my readers that might be interested in knowing that this is going on in their home state. :-)

And don't forget their Facebook group.
