First ever Congressional hearing on anti-transgender discrimination

While the legal world was abuzz today with the release of the 5-4 DC v. Heller decision, the House Subcommittee on Health, Employment, Labor and Pensions held the first ever Congressional hearing on discrimination against transgender people, entitled : "An Examination of Discrimination Against Trangender Americans in the Workplace."

Information about the hearing and witnesses is at the National Center for Transgender Equality website, or the Subcommittee's website. I'm very busy now, but I hope to provide a summary and analysis of the testimony and questioning early next week.
