US: Obama to sign Executive Order banning anti-gay workplace discrimination

  • Truth

    Thank you, Mr Obama. You will go down in history as the President who achieved for LGBT rights what Lincoln did for those of African Americans.

  • John Iavarone

    Another great reason why I love this President.

    its a start. You can put whatever you want into law I know people here in the UK working in places that are homophobic -they have rent to pay and loans and maybe walking into another well paid job is not that easy. Laws help but they don’t offer complete protection, its a case of cop orates changing their stance.

      I wish you luck, but is it really something non-Romanians should be voting on?

      • Dolly Digest

        I have seen this post in many places over the web – and I wonder if it is a spam data gathering exercise – I live within the EU and am active within many LGBT organisations and have not encountered a legitimate equal marriage petition. Be wary about putting your personal information on a document that is seemingly supporting a good cause, because it may just be an attempt to obtain your personal information. I am not saying do not such petitions, but be very wary.

    Heroic, responsible and historic.

    So now, it’s illegal for military contractors to discriminate against people because they’re trans.

    But it’s legal for the military to discharge a soldier because they’re trans.

    Kinda think they missed a big step there.
