The Seattle Journal for Social Justice just published a new issue that includes a cluster of articles and art on trans issues. You can read the introduction I wrote for the cluster here.
Here is an interview with advocates working on Medicaid access for trans people in three states.
We’re having a symposium featuring several articles from the cluster at Seattle University School of Law on October 20 from lunchtime until evening open to the public and free. Please come!
