Protecting Transgender Families: Strategies for Advocates
Western New England University School of Law
Human Rights Quarterly, Vol. 30, p. 11, Summer 2003
For a transgender (trans) man or woman, what begins as the dissolution of a relationship may be transformed into a public nightmare in which the individual is forced to defend the authenticity of his or her gender in the face of relentless, brutal, and humiliating questions about the most intimate details of personal anatomy and sexual practices. This Article discusses this reality in the case of Michael Kantaras, a transsexual man in Clearwater, Florida in 2002.
