Obama's tour continues as his administration drafts guidelines to protect transgender federal employees.
These guidelines will be included in handbook used by management. There will be other info added as the draft continues to come together.
“The president is making a very clear statement that transgender people won’t be discriminated against."
The provisions will help give transgender workers avenues within the federal government to protest a job action as discriminatory, though Ms. Keisling added, “There is also a very important symbolic value to that, from our point of view.”
I have to say, they are moving these issues along. I am very happy to see this come together.
