About Transgender Persons and the Law

To paraphrase American playwright, performer, feminist, and activist Eve Ensler, transgender persons are immigrants into the world (read culture) of women and men. And immigrants are always hated, mistreated, and not appreciated when they first arrive.

This straightforward and informative groundbreaking book is intended to educate and inform practitioners on the various laws and landmark court cases involving transgendered individuals in a number of legal situations, including:

  • housing

  • military service and veterans benefits

  • family law

  • education

  • health care

  • personal safety

  • employment

  • immigration

  • criminal justice

It also discusses the myriad legal documents transgendered persons need to understand before filling out paperwork in order to change ones name, birth certificate, and gender identification.

Finally, this book includes a DVD containing a complete set of forms for all 50 states and the District of Columbia for name changes and, for those jurisdictions that allow it, birth certificate changes.
Praise for Transgender Persons and the Law

Transgender Persons and the Law is a very comprehensive text. All lawyers and lay activists dealing with this area of the law either in the courts or in legislative lobbying should read it. As I read, I felt gratified at how far TG legal gains have come  as expressed in this book  since 1992 when I created the first international TG legal conference in Houston. Obviously, there is much more work to be done in the area of TG legal gains. Even so, thank you, Ms. Howell, for this encompassing snapshot of all of our legal gains a mere two decades later.
--Phyllis Randolph Frye, J.D., Grandmother of the national TG legal and political movement

Ally Howells Transgender Persons and the Law is likely to become the definitive treatise for legal issues that have specific application to transgender persons throughout the United States. I commend this book to any lawyer who might be representing transgender clients, or anyone who is interested in learning more about the special legal challenges faced by transgender people.
--Robert J. OToole, Esq.
