"I'm announcing today that I will be signing on as a cosponsor to the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA). Discrimination must never be tolerated, and I believe that all Americans deserve an equal opportunity to fulfill their potential. No one - NO ONE - should be turned away from a job or fired because of their sexual orientation OR gender identity."
--Sen. Kay Hagan of NC at Saturday's NC Pride Festival and Parade, after meeting with a group of transgender constituents last week. This is a major shift for Hagan, who had previously expressed lack of clarity about trans inclusion in prior years.
