New York Association for Gender Rights Advocacy (NYAGRA):

NYAGRA was founded to advocate for freedom of gender identity and expression for all. Our founding meeting took place on 30 June 1998, and our concern was to secure the full inclusion of all transsexual, transgendered, and gender variant people in discrimination and hate crimes law at the state and local level in New York. We first approached the Empire State Pride Agenda in November 1998, and from those discussions, a campaign for a local transgender rights bill was conceived. NYAGRA convened the first meeting of the legislative work group in October 1999, which included representatives from NYAGRA and the Pride Agenda as well as the six original primary sponsors of the bill (Int. No. 754, later re-introduced as Int. No. 24). The legislative work group, coordinated by Pauline Park, led the successful campaign for passage of the bill, NYAGRA’s greatest legislative success to date.  http://www.nyagra.com
