Jack Arpey reports in New York State of Politics that Gov. Kathy Hochul signed a bill into law on NOv. 30 that bars long-term care facilities and from discriminating against any resident because of their actual or perceived sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or HIV status. Hochul said, "New York's seniors should be able to live their lives with the dignity and respect they deserve, free from discrimination of every kind.... LGBTQIA + and HIV-positive seniors are among our most vulnerable populations, and today we are taking steps to ensure that all New Yorkers - regardless of who they are, who they love or their HIV status - find safety and support in places where they need it the most. Hate will never have a place in New York.” Dec. 1 is World AIDS Day. Read more about this story in New York State of Politics.
