Hawaii's state legislature has passed a bill that will ensure transgender people are able to change their birth certificates to reflect their correct gender identity without expensive and invasive gender reassignment surgery.
Transgender people with incorrect identity documents often face discrimination and even violence. Equality Hawaii encourages Gov. David Ige to sign the bill into law.
This year's Honolulu Rainbow Film Festival, June 4-7, will feature the biggest selection yet of LGBT-themed films from around the world screened in three venues around Honolulu. Plus an opening night gala, lots of stars, and great conversations sparked by the next wave of queer cinema.
