On Monday, Hawaii’s Governor Neil Abercrombie signed into law HB 546, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender identity or expression in employment and as a matter of public policy. According to the Human Rights Campaign, one-quarter of U.S. States and in excess of 125 cities and countries now have similar laws.
Hawaii has had bans on discrimination based upon sexual orientation since 1991.
