Member Call-Ins/Webinars

The National LGBT Bar Association would like to invite you to a call‐in with two of our nation’s leading experts on transgender rights and strategy talk about the connections between transgender advocacy and medical frameworks for understanding transgender identities and transsexualism. The subject of this discussion is even more pressing in light of the American Psychiatric Association’s forthcoming revision of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) which classifies many transgender people as having a mental health condition. Should attorneys and transgender clients pursue disability claims? What are the implications for arguing that gender transition‐related care is medically necessary? Come join us for a fascinating hour‐long discussion to hear answers to these and other burning legal questions you may have on related topics. Speakers include Dru Levasseur, Transgender Rights Attorney for Lamda Legal and Jennifer Levi, director of GLAD’s Transgender Rights Project.
