Disappointed in HRC

I’m deeply dissappointed in the position that HRC decided in regards that the transgender members of the LGB be left behind. Donna Rose, the only transgender member of HRC Board of Directors, has resigned because of their position. Many of us have been terminated when we decided to come out and start our transtions. Then there are many people who just transverse the gender line. The woman who is too butch or the effeminate man. These individuals can also be fired or refused employment. On the other hand they must be applauded for their position on the Jena 6. We are all brothers and sisters in our fight for equality and justice.
