Fairness For All Marylanders Act - UPDATE!

Went to Equality Maryland’s Fairness For All Marylanders Act training at Open Door Metropolitan Community Church today. 

#FAMA14 updates MD’s anti-discrimination law to include trans people, was signed by the governor on the 15th and should go into effect October 1st – but opponents are gathering signatures for a ballot referendum towards repealing the Act, and supporters need to act to prevent this. Get the FAQs at, sign the pledge at, and spread the word everywhere. If you see opposition signature-gatherers, call 1.856.624.3247 or email Volunteers are also needed. #StandforFairness

We’d been wanting to visit Open Door, and they made a very good impression; we plan to attend a service soon. And, small world – a few church members recognized Julia from a queer bowling league more than a decade ago.
