New York legislators have vowed to fight on for “gender identity” protections in the next session of the New York State Assembly.  The measure – the Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act (“GENDA”) – would give statewide legal protections to people who are denied employment, housing, access to health care, or access to stores or restaurants because of their “gender identity or expression,” unhelpfully defined as “having or being perceived as having a gender identity, self image, appearance, behavior or expression whether or not that gender identity, self image, appearance, behavior or expression is different from that traditionally associated with the sex assigned to that person at birth.”
