On a related note, transgendered and gay partners are ineligible for 9/11
assistance from the government. The government refuses to recognize such
partners of the victims.
The Red Cross is giving assistance to such people for the first time in
their history. In previous disasters, they also refused to provide
assistance to such partners.
