Washington, DC, October 22, 2015 — The National LGBTQ Task Force Action Fund is applauding New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Executive Order to extend anti-discrimimation protections to transgender and gender nonconforming people.

“Millions of New Yorkers have been waiting for this day. We thank Governor Cuomo for his leadership in extending protections to the Empire State’s transgender and gender nonconforming communities who face discrimination in almost every area of their lives at levels much higher than LGBQ people and the general population. We want to thank all the LGBTQ organizations in New York State who have worked so diligently for this day. ” said Rea Carey, Executive Director, National LGBTQ Task Force Action Fund.
