Governor Vetoes Gender Identity Bill

Yep, Governor Douglas vetoed the gender identity bill that passed both the Vermont House and the Senate with tri-partisan support. I'm sure there will be more about this in the news in the coming days — I just came from a rally/protest/press conference at RU12? Queer Community Center. Lots of activists and pols there, including B-town mayor Bob Kiss and Reps Bill Lippert, Jason Lorber and John Tracy.

I know this isn't my usual blog fodder; I'm updating on this because I posted about it before and wanted to follow up.
