Transgender Girls = Girls
From the New York City Commission on Human Rights we have “Transgender Girls are Girls”. The short public service ad was made to spread awareness of transgender rights in the City of New York. This is the first public service message to be made by a government agency on behalf of transgender rights.
“No one deserves to be denied access to bathrooms or discriminated against for being who they are. Every New Yorker has the legal right to use the bathroom consistent with their gender identity, no questions asked – and these powerful ads affirm this right,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio in a press release.
In New York City, use the restroom consistent with who you are. No questions asked.
Because safe and equal bathroom access is a fundamental human right, as well as the law of the land in New York City, the NYC Commission on Human Rights has launched the nation’s first government-led citywide ad campaign affirming every New Yorkers’ right to use the bathroom consistent with their gender identity, regardless of their gender assigned at birth. It has been illegal in New York City to discriminate against an individual on the basis of gender identity or expression, including denying access to bathrooms, since 2002.
The second short film in the series is called “Ordinary People, Ordinary Lives”.
