MLA Endorses Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Librarians Special Interest Group Statement

The MLA Board of Directors has endorsed the following statement prepared by the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Librarians Special Interest Group.

The Medical Library Association is greatly concerned about the significant negative health impact of discrimination against transgender and gender variant individuals. MLA opposes recent efforts in North Carolina and other localities to restrict transgender individuals to the use of bathrooms inconsistent with their gender identity, and supports laws and regulations that decrease stigma and discrimination against citizens and colleagues, including individuals who may be members and staff of the Medical Library Association.
