". . . always time to be on the right side of history."
But never the right time to truly fight for the gender variant people in New York State, Sen. Duane? Why didn't GENDA (Gender Expression Non Discrimination Act) get onto the extraordinary session agendas? Why didn't you raise hell about that? Why didn't your allies in the Empire State Pride Agenda say anything either?
I guess it wasn't time yet to "come back" for the trans community. Your civil rights are protected, Mr Duane. Mine aren't. And it's apparent you think that's perfectly alright.
