Transgender Law and Politics





An intensive examination of the legal, social, and political issues raised by the status and treatment of transgender persons, primarily but not exclusively in the United States. Sex, gender, sexuality, identity, and equality are interrogated. Issues and cases on discrimination and other relevant legal concepts arising in contexts of trans rights including health care, employment, sexual and other assault, housing, marriage, parenting, military, imprisonment, education, and athletics, with an optional section on immigration, are focused, with particular attention to sex and gender questions. Voices and accounts of trans people are featured; some dissenters are included.
