SAN FRANCISCO — Legislation that would offer special protection to gay and transgender seniors in assisted living facilities is headed for the San Francisco Board of Supervisors.

The bill by Supervisor Scott Wiener forbids discrimination based on gender identity or sexual orientation and demands that senior facilities train at least one staff member to serve as a liaison for LGBT residents.
