"Starbucks announced Monday that it will expand health benefits for transgender employees, including covering surgeries that were previously considered cosmetic.

"The company has covered gender reassignment surgery since 2012, but will now cover services like breast reduction or augmentation, hair transplants, voice therapy and facial feminization surgery.

"Starbucks partnered with the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) to create the new benefits. A WPATH official said that Starbucks is the first company to do so. . . ."

Well I think this is wonderful, no matter how you feel about them as a coffee chain.
They certainly have enough business to work it into the budget.
