Poll: 71 percent of Marylanders support transgender rights bill

BALTIMORE — A new poll finds that 71 percent of Marylanders support proposed legislation that would prohibit discrimination based on gender identity in the areas of employment, housing, and public accommodation.

The Goucher Poll, conducted by the Sarah T. Hughes Field Politics Center at Baltimore-based Goucher College, found that only 20 percent of respondents were opposed.

“The Fairness for All Marylanders Act of 2014″ would amend the state’s anti-discrimination laws that already include sexual orientation. The bill was approved March 4 in the Maryland state Senate and is awaiting action in the House of Delegates.
