We call this installment of the LGBT Law Notes Podcast: “The Trans Trio.” We will be discussing several cases with significant implications for three very important issues impacting transgender rights.

First, a unanimous Sixth Circuit panel held that discrimination based on transgender status is protected under Title VII

Second, we will give you an update on Trump’s hateful trans military ban.

Third, we will tell you about the flurry of activity around equal access to accurate birth certificates for transgender individuals.

We also have a very special segment this month. April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. I sat down with the Anti-Violence Project’s legal director Virginia Goggin to discuss their legal work and how violence impacts our community.

And of course, Art will be surprising me with his choice for our of note segment.
