There has not been a day in my memory when we have not been better off than we were the day before.
– Daniel Zingale, Director of Public Policy, Human Rights Campaign Fund, in an interview in North Carolina’s The Front Page, June 9, 1995.

Daniel has/had a short memory. Five years before that date, trans people were not, via language that equates trans people to pedophiles, statutorily excluded from federal disability anti-discrimination law.

Then came the day that the ADA became law.
