Big it news here in Florida! Equality Florida has launched TransAction Florida! TransAction Florida is an initiative to promote equality for transgender people. It has a Facebook page and a Twitter feed so far.
Also of note is that Florida State Rep. Holly Raschein has proposed the Florida Competitive Workforce Act. This legislation would add sexual orientation and gender identity to the state law prohibiting discrimination.
Finally, the appeals of the handful of district court decisions striking down Florida’s gay marriage ban have been consolidated. The 11th circuit court of appeals has refused to overrule the expiration of the stay on the district court ruling. This means that, barring intervention by the right-wing U.S a Supreme Court, same-sex marriage will be legal in Florida! 🎈🎉🎈🎉🎈 Hurray!
