obama inauguration speech

President Obama’s inauguration speech was beautiful: “We, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths—that all of us are created equal—is the star that guides us still; just as it guided our forebears through Seneca Falls, and Selma, and Stonewall; just as it guided all those men and women, sung and unsung, who left footprints along this great Mall, to hear a preacher say that we cannot walk along; to hear a King proclaim that our individual freedom is inextricably bound to the freedom of every soul on Earth.”

Universities across the country have been trying to address gender, whether that has been through attempts to create gender-neutral housing, discussions about transmen at women’s colleges, or by ensuring students may use the bathrooms matching their gender identity without fearing consequences. Some universities are taking less accepting approaches.

There are so many important issues of equality facing the LGBTQ* community. Currently, the focus remains on the fight for marriage equality. Another important battle has been sitting in the background waiting to be pushed to the forefront: employment protections. According to the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), only 16 states and DC have laws in place protecting workers from discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. Another five states have protections against discrimination based on sexual orientation, but not gender identity (“Statewide…”).

Exploring Gender: Trans* News Updates

gender neutral

 

Almost every day, I spend at least 30 minutes in research for these articles. Generally a bit more than that, looking through Google news, the trans* tag on tumblr, the Huffington Post. I find so many interesting articles, some great news, some not so great news. But I cannot write about it all, so here is an overview of recent news including a trans*man in New York who was never notified of his cancer diagnosis and then was denied care, UC Berkeley making its new residence hall trans* inclusive, the FAA stopping psychological testing to certify trans* pilots, and the APA issuing a statement in support of trans* rights.
