Representative Dan Frankel introduced a gay protections bill in the Pennsylvania House yesterday, Frankel announced in a press release.
Frankel’s bill would prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity or expression in the areas of housing, employment, and public accommodations by amending the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act.
Frankel, a Democrat from Allegheny County, said he has already gathered 78 co-sponsors from both parties.
“This legislation is critical to thousands of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Pennsylvanians who are trying to work and have a roof over their heads, and it enjoys substantial support from Pennsylvanians from every corner of the Commonwealth,” Jake Kaskey, policy and outreach coordinator for Equality Advocates Pennsylvania, said in a statement.
