Moscow Mulls Transgender Protection

Item: Moscow to consider added protections for transgendered people: Human rights commission member asks city to change its employment nondescrimination policy/Mark Williams, Moscow-Pullman Daily News/Mark Williams, Moscow-Pullman Daily News

More Info: Tim Gresback wants the city to provide more legal protection for transgendered people. The lawyer and Moscow Human Rights Commission member has asked the city to consider adding transgendered people as a specifically protected group in its employment nondiscrimination policy. Speaking before the city's administrative committee Monday, Gresback said that the city's current nondiscrimination policy provides protections based on age, race, religion and sexual orientation.

Question: Should Moscow include transgendered people in its current nondiscrimination policy that provides protections based on age, race, religion and sexual orientation.
