Bishop Gene Robinson: employees should be judged on performance, not sexual orientation or gender identity.
Bishop Robinson writes in the Huffington Post about Gerri Cannon, a transgender woman he knows from his home state of New Hampshire. Robinson explains how Gerri’s freedom to work is constantly at risk: “She is surrounded by a work environment that is largely hostile to the fact that she once lived her life as a man but now finds a fulfilling life as the woman she was created to be. She lives in fear–not only of the violence so prevalent against transgender people (the murder rate for transgender people is astronomically high), but also the constant threat of losing her job because of her gender identity.”
