Beyond Bathrooms: How Legal Protections Help Transgender People and Why the Law Isn't Everything
April 22, 2014
8:30pm Library Auditorium
An explosion of federal administrative policies, as well as state and local laws, have led to big changes for trans* rights in recent years. Learn about how the law helps trans* people get proper identification, secure healthcare, and avoid discriminatory practices, and why the law alone is not enough to protect trans* rights. Legal and social activist Avory Faucette will answer your questions of how much laws really help trans* people and how important media activism and social support are to fill the gaps where the law falls short, especially for trans* people of color and individuals who fall outside the gender binary.
Avory Faucette is a trans queer feminist activist, writer, editor, and public speaker. After earning a J.D. for the study of international human rights and gender/sexuality issues in the law, zie has gone on to focus on trans and queer identity, policy, and marginalized identities under the trans/queer umbrella. As a genderqueer person, zie comments frequently on non-binary identity, transgender and genderqueer issues, and media coverage of these populations. Avory's work has been featured at Ms. Magazine Online, RH Reality Check, On the Issues, xoJane, The Frisky, Girl w/ Pen, Feministe, and Feministing and zie writes regularly at the blog Radically Queer. Zie is published in the Journal of Gender, Race, and Justice and several anthologies. Zie has won numerous social justice awards and is a member of the inaugural Trans 100.
