Boston Globe publishes editorial supporting proposed ban on transgender discrimination

This is not a legal development, but it is worth noting that the Boston Globe today published an editorial today in support of proposed legislation on Beacon Hill that would ban discrimination against transgendered persons, calling such a proposal a "matter of simple justice."  As the Globe notes, the bill has been proposed in years past, but the Judiciary Committee never  brought he bill to a vote until today, when it is scheduled for a hearing.

I have noted previously that the media and lawmakers are slowly but steadily recognizing the enormous challenges and prejudices that transgendered persons face every day.  See my previous posts here and here, and developments in Nevada, Connecticut, and a report by the Center for American Progress
