Delegate Ariana Kelly (District 16), lead sponsor of HB235 (gender identity anti-discrimination)
"I support this bill because it is a common sense measure that will protect Marylanders from discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity just as you cannot discriminate based on religion or race. Montgomery County has had anti-discrimination law since 2007. It has been implemented successfully, with no problems. It is time for all residents of our state to be treated fairly and equally under the law. I am glad the bill's supporters will be in Annapolis tonight to speak with their state legislators and show how strongly people believe in this measure."
