New Hampshire’s transgender anti-discrimination bill signed

New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu has signed a bill protecting transgender people from discrimination.

The law bans discrimination based on gender identity in housing, employment and public accommodations, in addition to the protections that already exist based on race, sex, religion and sexual orientation.

New Hampshire had been the only New England state without such protections.


Sununu, a Republican, said Friday that discrimination — in any form — is unacceptable and “runs contrary to New Hampshire’s ‘Live Free or Die’ spirit.”

The headline has been corrected to say that the governor of New Hampshire, not Rhode Island, signed the transgender protection bill.
