Join Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders and the Mass LGBTQ Bar on Wednesday, February 22 from 6-8:30pm at Milky Way/Bella Luna (284 Amory St, Jamaica Plain, MA) for our next GLADHour, a happy hour for fans of equal justice for all! Enjoy great food and drinks in a relaxed and fun atmosphere while networking with fellow supporters of LGBTQ equality.
GLADHours are hosted 3 times a year in conjunction with the Mass LGBTQ Bar.
This time, learn more about GLAD’s transgender advocacy from Jennifer L. Levi, director of GLAD’s Transgender Rights Project and one of our nation’s leading experts on transgender legal issues.
Transgender people face the most basic and blatant discrimination every day – from being denied access to employment, housing, or healthcare, to being physically attacked because of the way they look or dress. Through the Transgender Rights Project, GLAD puts our litigation, legislative, and educational assets to work in a focused way to establish clear legal protections for the transgender community. Come celebrate our community’s victory in getting a transgender civil rights law passed and learn more about next steps on this social justice journey.
