How Maryland’s Fair Housing Fairness Law Is A Huge Blow To The LGBT Community
The Maryland Fair Housing Act, passed in 1992, aims to give fair housing protections to the LGBT community.
However, it is a huge blow to the transgender community.
“The LGBT community, especially trans women, are very marginalized, and they are discriminated against in every way,” explained Mara Keisling, a trans woman who helped organize the fair.
“It’s the first time that they have a law that actually does a lot for them.”
The Fair Housing act gives trans people protections that do not apply to everyone else.
It also gives people who are disabled the same protections as other people with disabilities.
The Fair Employment Act, which also gives transgender people protections, is a similar law, but it is still not as comprehensive as the Maryland Fair Employment Law.
The Maryland Transgender Equality Act, also known as the Fair Employment and Housing Act or FAMEA, is much more comprehensive, but is still limited.
The law requires all employers to provide reasonable accommodations for trans people and is also aimed at allowing people with sexual orientation and gender identity to use restrooms, locker rooms and other facilities consistent with their gender identity.
However the Fair Housing law is not as sweeping, because it doesn’t apply to businesses that provide a service, like restaurants and bars, as well as places that offer health care.
So, for example, a restaurant might be able to provide a safe and appropriate restroom and a safe environment, but not a locker room.
That is, the business might not have to accommodate trans people or provide other facilities that align with their needs.
There are some small businesses that have come forward with a plan to offer a bathroom in the men’s bathroom at their businesses.
However that has not been a priority for the fair housing community.
The fair housing commission is working to expand the Fair Accessibility Ordinance, which would allow trans people to use bathrooms consistent with who they are, as long as they can prove that they can make a reasonable accommodation in the business.
This ordinance would be enforced by the Fair Opportunity Ordinance.
This new law would also provide a federal safe harbor for trans Americans, which was passed by the US Congress in 2015.
“We know that this is a federal law, and that the Trump administration is not going to do anything to overturn it,” said Keislings.
“But we want the federal government to be a leader in helping us to protect our rights, so that trans people can have access to bathrooms that align more with their identities and gender.”
But Keisings group is working with other groups to get the state fair housing law passed.
She is working for a Maryland group called the Fair Fair Housing Council.
The group is calling for the Fair Enforcement Act, a bill that would give trans people a much better understanding of how fair housing rules apply to them.
The act is currently being discussed in the House of Delegates.
The bill would require fair housing organizations to hold a public hearing before making changes to their policies, procedures and practices.
It would also make it a misdemeanor for an employer to discriminate against trans people.
The legislature would also need to pass legislation to enforce these protections, which is what Keislers group is hoping will happen.
“If we can’t have a hearing, if we can only have a one-sided hearing, we can never get any kind of policy or policy enforcement,” said Mara Keisdell, one of the co-founders of the FairHousing Council.
“That’s what I’m hoping for, that we get the right kind of law and we can actually get the enforcement.
We’re hoping that we can get that bill through the legislature and pass it by the end of the year.”
