SAN FRANCISCO - The San Francisco Bay Area Chapter National Lawyers Guild Queer Committee supports the "Left Out Party" where people will protest the Human Rights Campaign's (HRC) San Francisco Bay Area Gala because of its failure to support the rights of transgender individuals.
The Queer Committee disagrees with HRC's decision to continue its support of the Federal Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) after protections for transgender employees were stripped from the bill.
