Coalition for Marriage to hold anti-trans lobby day – by Ethan Jacobs – Associate editor

On April 7 transgender people and their allies from across the state will come to Beacon Hill to lobby for the transgender rights bill, but the very next day their opponents, led by the anti-LGBT Coalition for Marriage and Family, will hold their own lobby day in opposition to the bill. The transgender rights bill would expand the state’s non-discrimination and hate crimes laws to cover cases of discrimination or violence related to gender identity or expression. The Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition will be leading the lobby day in support of the bill.
