I'm At A Fundraise...

This afternoon I am attended a fundraiser for GLAD (Gay and Lesbian Advocate and Defenders) and the guest of honor is Governor Malloy. Most people do not know it, but if it wasn’t for the governor we would not have the gender inclusive anti-discrimination statue that we now have.

The governor and his staff pushed through the bill when it was stalled in the House and then later in the Senate. He and his staff persuaded many legislators in both chambers to vote for the bill and when the bill came up for a vote in the wee hours in the morning, his chief of staff came up to the visitor’s gallery to join us in watching the final vote.

 And the governor continues his support of the trans-community.
