In keeping with his promise to work for full equality for GLBT Americans, President Obama’s administration is set to put protections for transgendered federal workers into place.

The protections will be incorporated into existing policies in the near future, according to a June 23 article in The New York Times.

The article noted that there are few transgendered individuals among federal employees, and indeed estimates of the prevalence of transgendered individuals is thought to be low in the general population.
