Tuesday, January 29, 2019
The New York State Senate and Assembly passed the Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act (GENDA) on January 15, 2019. GENDA’s effective date will be thirty days after Governor Cuomo signs the Act into law.

GENDA defines “gender identity or expression” to mean “a person’s actual or perceived identity, appearance, behavior, expression or other gender-related characteristic regardless of the sex assigned to that person at birth, including, but not limited to, the status of being transgender.”

GENDA prohibits discrimination in employment, housing, education, and public accommodations based on gender identity or expression.
