Nevada Passes Trans Protections

The Silver State quietly passed a bill offering protection against discrimination in the workplace based on gender identity.  They became the 14th state to provide these protections.  According to an article in LGBTQ Nation two more bills are moving through the legislature:
On April 25, the state Senate approved SB331, which would prohibits discrimination against gays and transsexuals in places of public accommodation including hotels, motels and restaurants; and SB368, which would prohibit discrimination in housing and other real property transactions.
I have always had a fondness for Nevada based on my past relatives living there.  Nevada repealed their sodomy law long before Texas, which still has it on the books!  And I do like Las Vegas, the city that does tacky right!  Now another reason to like Nevada, "Trans-Friendly."
