New exclusive audio interview with Tracy Baim, Executive Producer
of the new film “Hannah Free", starring Sharon Gless (Burn Notice,
Queer as Folk, Cagney & Lacey), that's receiving rave reviews
Wednesday the House Oversight & Government Reform Committee
passed the Domestic Partners Benefits & Obligations Act (H.R. 2517),
authored by Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin (D-WI). Under the
legislation, same-gender domestic partners of federal employees
living together in a committed relationship would be eligible for
health benefits, long-term care, Family & Medical Leave & federal
retirement benefits, among others. The domestic partners of federal
employees would also be subject to the same responsibilities that
apply to the spouses of federal employees, such as anti-nepotism
rules & financial disclosure requirements. “Today’s actions mark
another significant step in our march toward LGBT equality,” said
Congresswoman Baldwin, Co-Chair of the House LGBT Equality
Caucus. “Our movement is gaining momentum around the country
& Congress is following the will of the people. Today is a day to
celebrate yet another milestone & recognize anew that ‘the arc of
the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.'”
