Stein Club urges Council to act on LGBTQ seniors bill

Washington Blade

(Washington Blade) The Gertrude Stein Democratic Club voted unanimously Monday night to urge D.C. Council member Brandon Todd (D-Ward 4) and members of the Council committee he chairs to hold a hearing on a bill calling for anti-discrimination protections and improved services for LGBTQ seniors.

Stein Club members said the bill in question, the Care for LGBTQ Seniors and Seniors with HIV Amendment Act, has been stalled in the Council’s Committee on Government Operations for a year, with no word from Todd on whether he plans to schedule a required hearing on the bill.  Click here for the rest of the article.
