Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act (GENDA) (the Bathroom Bill) (S.7010-Hoylman/A.3358-Gottfried)

For the past 10 years, New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms has successfully advocated against the passage of the Gender Expression Nondiscrimination Act (GENDA), also known as the Bathroom Bill. GENDA would make “gender identity or expression” a protected category under New York’s Human Rights Law. GENDA would require New York’s shopping malls, stores, universities, restaurants, and recreational facilities—along with many other public places—to accommodate crossdressing and so-called gender transitions by allowing biological males to access women-only spaces such as restrooms and locker rooms. GENDA would also require New York’s employers to accommodate employees who wish to dress and identify as members of the opposite sex.
