This is good to hear.
About time. I mean I understand that LGBT are a unique bunch however we deserve that same medical care and understanding that non LGBT people receive.
Thanks for posting this!

It's great to say it, but DO it because the cost for most is silly expensive.

It's about time. Everyone deserves equal rights. Writing the guidelines will be the toughest part. Using the clearest and most concise language is critical and seems so impossible to achieve. It was a huge problem that was trying to be cleared up in Houston prop 1 HERO which unfortunately was not passed.
