What’s hot? We welcome the decision of the D.C. Government to introduce trans* inclusive health care coverage! According to a bulletin released February 26, D.C. will view “attempts by companies to limit or deny medically necessary treatments for gender dysphoria, including gender reassignment surgeries, to be discriminatory.” GLIFAA is working actively with other LGBT organizations to promote the same progressive change in health insurance policies administered by the Office of Personnel Management. (See Trans* Resources for more on GLIFAA’s advocacy on transgender issues.)
What else? We are joining Team DC, Human Rights Campaign, Capital Pride, and Pride House International in speaking out against discrimination of LGBT athletes at the Sochi Olympics. And we keep pushing for fair treatment of LGBT colleagues in our workplaces and respect for LGBT human rights around the world.
