Cuomo Says New York Stands Behind Trans Students
The federal government may not be standing behind transgender youth, but the elders of SAGE are heartened to know that Governor Cuomo is. In a statement today, Cuomo stated:
“As the federal government seeks to roll back the progress we have achieved toward equality, we in New York will never stop fighting to ensure the LBGTQ community and all Americans are afforded the equal protections guaranteed to them by the United States Constitution.”
SAGE thanks Governor Cuomo for doing the right thing and protecting transgender students across New York State. SAGE and the entire LGBT community refuses to stand for the rollback of transgender students’ rights and the rights of our community. We will push forward in the fight for equality!
