The City of Hamilton's New Transgender Protocol

On Wednesday March 8, Hamilton City Council unanimously ratified a decision made at City Council's Audit, Finance and Administration Committee to approve Aidan's Motion titled 'Protocol for Gender Identity and Gender Expression; Transgender and Gender Non-Conforming Persons.'   

Aidan was instrumental in the creation of the protocol and coordinating the discussion of it at Committee.  He would like to thank members of Hamilton's community of people who identify as "transgender and non-binary, Two Spirit communities for their contribution and publically sharing their stories.  He would also like to thank the countless others who contributed or supported the work through presentations and letters to Council.
