The committee of the senate met yesterday in Maryland about the gender identity anti-discrimination act.
The Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index 2012 came out this week, ranking hundreds of major US companies based on a set of criteria. These criteria include an assessment of companies’ non-discrimination policies, the offering of equal partner benefits, availability of LGBT resources for employees, the provision of transgender healthcare, a public commitment to LGBT causes, and a lack of support for anti-LGBT initiatives. The scoring falls under each of these categories, amounting to a highest possible score of 100.
I had a job interview today, the first one in about a year. And though I now go by Cael on a day to day basis, I have still not changed my name legally, so I still must legally apply as Mary. In the course of past interviews, it has always been difficult to try to figure out how to dress as my life has progressed. At first, it was easy—though uncomfortable—to put on some tight pin stripe pants and a spaghetti-string tank top under an equally tight button up shirt. Then as I grew more comfortable with myself, I would trade the tight pants for some men’s slacks instead. Little by little, my style changed to reflect my male identity, and I no longer own any women’s clothes.
