To celebrate the passage of GENDA and a bill banning conversion therapy in New York State, The LOFT's Interim Executive Director John Baker invites you to join us at the center on Sunday, January 20th from 3-4pm for a victory reception.  We hope to have with us LOFT volunteer Joann Prinzivalli, founder of NYTRO and author of portions of the GENDA bill, to provide a historical context on how momentous this victory is for all New Yorkers.
New York State lawmakers have just passed the Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act (GENDA), a major step forward in ensuring that transgender, gender nonconforming and nonbinary (TGNCNB) people are treated fairly and equally under the law. By adding gender identity and expression as a protected class under the Human Rights Law, GENDA provides TGNCNB people with protection against harassment and discrimination in employment, housing and public spaces like restaurants and shops.
We are also thrilled to share news of the passage of a bill banning conversion therapy in New York State. By banning conversion therapy, New York will protect LGBTQ youth from being unduly victimized and traumatized simply for living their authentic lives.

Westchester Medical Center's Adult Primary Care Center is looking to learn more about the needs of Westchester's local LGBT community. 

       

"Maintaining high quality and accessible healthcare for the community is extremely important. In  the past, the healthcare needs of LGBTQ communities may have been unmet as a result of bias, cost, and inequitable access to a safe, open, and comfortable healthcare environment. The Adult Primary Care Center (APCC) at Westchester Medical Center is working towards a better understanding of the needs of the local LGBTQ community. Westchester Medical Center invites you to help us in this regard by taking the attached confidential, anonymous survey at your convenience; in order to allow us to build a healthier future for us all.
