In re: Mandatory LGBT Training for Employees of the New York State Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS) (S.277-Hoylman/A.2662-Ortiz)

Bill S.277-Hoylman/A.2662-Ortiz would require certain employees of the New York State Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS) to receive special training regarding LGBT youth. It is inappropriate for the State of New York to categorize underaged youth with sexual identity labels, even if some young people may choose to adopt labels. The use of such labels by the OCFS could be construed as promoting same-sex activity or gender-dysphoric behavior by vulnerable youth. Furthermore, NYCF has deep concerns that the proposed regulations called for under this bill would be similar to other extreme regulations that have been implemented by the Cuomo administration.
