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 http://bit.ly/FAMAFAQs, sign the pledge at http://bit.ly/StandForFairness, and spread the word everywhere. If you see opposition signature-gatherers, call 1.856.624.3247 or email FairnessWatch@gmail.com. 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.
