BREAKING: Federal court rules that our preliminary injunction against @realDonaldTrump’s #TransMilitaryBan must stay in place/ #LGBTQ lambdalegal.org/in-court/legal…
The court handed us a significant victory on a number of fronts tonight, while also denying a part of our summary judgment motion. The court also clearly did not buy that @realDonaldTrump & @VP’s implementations “plan” from 3/23 is new.
“The Court also rules that, because transgender people have long been subjected to systemic oppression and forced to live in silence, they are a protected class.”

^^^

This is a legal gem from tonight’s ruling. The court ruled that transgender people are a protected class.

Hey Twitter! This is @SaraRamirez, artist and proud Mexican Irish American #immigrant #bisexual #queer #woman. To mark #BiHealthMonth, I’m doing an #HRCTwitterTakeover to talk about the need to address #biphobia and #bi-erasure. #BHAM18 Sara Ramirez takes over the HRC Twitter in honor of Bisexual Health Awareness Month.
Those of us who love more than one sex/gender use many different labels, but we share a common experience: our presence makes people uncomfortable. Our very existence as #bisexual threatens heteronormativity and the gender binary. —@SaraRamirez #HRCTwitterTakeover
#Bisexual, #queer, #pansexual, #fluid, non-monosexual folk are the single largest group within the #LGBTQ community, and we come in all Pantone shades, all genders, and no gender. We're trans, cis, nonbinary. We're ✨everywhere ✨. —@SaraRamirez #HRCTwitterTakeover Bisexuals are the single largest group within the LGBTQ community.

writing a new piece, which led me to thinking about this, so I thought I'd share: I'm a "generation X" person. this is not news, of course...
...but, as a young person (in my 20s), I identified as a Green (this was pre-Jill Stein awfulness). and most of my generational cohorts identified that or as anarchists...
...very few of us identified as socialists or communists, despite overlapping philosophies/goals. And it wasn't because we despised those ideologies per se...

The #TrumpBudget is more than numbers on a page. It lays out an agenda to strip away people’s rights and health care. #HandsOff

Here’s what the plan would do. [Thread]
Gut both the Affordable Care Act and the #Medicaid program — the insurance plan for one in five women of reproductive age. For these women, Medicaid makes the difference between access to basic care, like birth control — or doing without.
Threaten 2.4 million people’s access to birth control, lifesaving cancer screenings, and other preventive care at Planned Parenthood health centers.

"I'd like to take a few minutes of your time to warn you about a dangerous psychiatrist at Fenway Behavioral Health, Dr. Howard Hernandez. I apologize for not writing this sooner, but I didn't feel ready to share this until now."
"About thirteen months ago I saw Dr. Hernandez for the first time. It was an initial intake visit, so much of our time was taken up by completing my history."

On 29 April 2015 at Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs, @HillaryClinton delivered the first policy paper of her campaign for the Democratic nomination. It was called "Race and Criminal Justice" and it was not only impressive, it was brilliant. 1/
By that time I knew Hillary Clinton. I mean I had come to understand how she thought about policy & how she viewed this second run.

She was sending a clear signal that day that most ignored or were simply unwilling acknowledge.

This was why she was running for President. 2/
In that speech she said things that no other major politician had had the guts to say. As many pointed she said things that President Obama wasn't able to say.

It was a courageous way to start her campaign. For a woman accused of always playing it safe this was her hell no. 3/

BREAKING: On today's episode of "How to Get Away with Discrimination," the DOJ's #LicensetoDiscriminate EO guidance. bit.ly/2ktBdI3
The devil is in the details of this "religious freedom" guidance, as they say. #LicensetoDiscriminate
