Excited! No.

I’m excited today because GENDA (Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act) made it through Government Operations and Codes committees of the New York State Assembly, which probably means a floor vote.  It won’t pass the Republican controlled Senate, probably won’t get a vote, but this is a huge step.

I was there when Emprire State Pride Agenda got a trans-EXclusive SONDA (Sexual Orientation Non-Discrimination Act) through the senate, as a reward for supporting a Republican candidate for Governor.

This is great news.  I was so excited I told my parents, separately.

They both noted that the governor was in the hospital for migraines last night.

No questions, no congratulations, no support, no nothing.

And that denial of response is for public policy, not for personal expression.  Imagine how challenging that must be.
