Pittsburgh's employee medical benefits for the first time will provide coverage for sex change surgery, Mayor Bill Peduto announced Thursday. The city has considered offering the benefit for years as the current medical package provides mental health and hormonal therapy benefits to transgender employees and their families. "We want to be able to provide quality healthcare to all of our employees," the mayor said. "It helps us to get good employees within the city, and certainly we want to be able to allow everyone to live their life to their full potential."
