New Hospital Visitation Rules in Effect

Posted by Corey Kaster on January 18, 2011

New federal regulations that prohibit hospitals from discriminating against visitors based on sexual orientation and gender identity take effect today.

According to the Human Rights Campaign, “These new regulations require all hospitals participating in Medicaid and Medicare programs – virtually every hospital in the country – to permit patients to designate visitors of their choosing and prohibit discrimination in visitation based on a number of factors, including sexual orientation and gender identity.”

Last year, President Barack Obama announced the regulations in response to the tragic story of Janice Langbehn and Lisa Pond of Florida. The couple was kept apart while Lisa died at a Miami hospital. (Source-The Advocate)

New Coming Out Display at Q Center. First time it has left the Nike Campus!

Think this is powerful? Think of the impact the Q Center has on our community.

Q Center is pleased and proud to present “Coming Out”, a display of history created by our friends at Nike’s Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender & Friends Employee Network.

The idea of coming out was introduced in 1869 by the German homosexual rights advocate Karl Heinrich Ulrichs as a means of emancipation. Claiming that invisibility was a major obstacle toward changing public opinion, he urged homosexuals themselves to come out. It would take another 100 years for the GLBT Movement to take off.

Q Center would like to thank Nike for lending this exhibition, and Q Center board member Aaron Hall for sponsoring its display. It will be on view in the north room of Q Center through August 1, 2010.

Last week, amid news that senior military officials supported ending the policy of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, a National Guardsman was contacted by his commanding officer with an invitation to rejoin his unit. Months earlier, Dan Choi had been recommended for discharge after his announcement on television that he was gay.

Choi is back with his unit now to receive training on critical infantry skills for a possible upcoming deployment. “It’s Good to be back,” he wrote in an email.
