Nothing but happiness here – despite a conservative backlash forming in the political weeds and swamps of the country against transgender persons, Wall Street is more and more seeing the light. According to the San Jose Mercury News:
From Apple to General Mills, nearly one fourth of Fortune 500 companies cover medical expenses associated with transgender care, according to gay and transgender rights group Human Rights Campaign. That’s up from 19 percent last year. When the group began tracking transgender benefits in 2002, no Fortune 500 companies offered them.
I will be shocked if the number doesn’t break 50% in just three more years. We’re making huge strides, folks!
I suggest reading the source article – there is a touching anecdote in there about a transwoman whose company, like mine, treated her with dignity and respect.
