Los Angeles Lawyer, October 2008
This short article explores three key myths codified in various laws and policies that impede the life chances of transgender people. The article ties together problems occurring in a range of institutions including homeless shelters, ID-issuing agencies, health insurance programs, Medicaid programs, prisons, jails, foster care programs, juvenile justice programs and private employers and traces how these three myths operate simultaneously to create impediments to basic economic participation and access to social service for transgender people.
