Trans Clients’ ID Documents & Debunking the Gender Binary

Room 304: 9:45 AM to 11:15 AM

Trans people must navigate a labyrinth of governmental agencies and a society that presumes gender binary and binary gender expression. In this session, we will unpack our binary assumptions together and discuss how these arise for trans community members who are seeking assistance from legal service providers. We'll also discuss recent court rule changes governing name changes and declarations of gender identity and other processes for correcting identity documentation.
