What Can Allies Do to Defend Trans Rights? with Mara Keisling

Getting Curious with Jonathan Van Ness #78 October 29, 2018

Mara Keisling is the founder and executive director of the National Center for Transgender Equality, “the nation’s leading social justice advocacy organization winning life-saving change for transgender people”.

Last week the New York Times reported that the Trump Administration may be seeking to change the definition for sex and gender under federal civil rights laws, narrowly defining it based on an individual’s sex as assigned at birth. This would essentially erase transgender people from enforcement of those laws.

There’s never been a more important time to stand with our trans family, so we recorded this bonus episode at The Bentzen Ball in Washington DC with the question: What Can Allies Do to Defend Trans Rights?
