The Senate today will pass legislation that will provide greater protections and services for New York’s LGBTQ community. The bills being advanced by the Senate Majority will establish the Modern Family Act, abolish the use of “Gay Panic or Trans Panic” defense, and create the transgender youth and young adult suicide prevention task force. The Senate will also pass the New York State Restoration of Honor Act that will correct the records of veterans discharged from the military because of their sexual orientation.
