On March 22, the AABANY LGBT Committee held its annual Spring Educational program at Nixon Peabody consisting of a robust discussion about the current status of trans rights and the rise in anti-trans legislation over the last two years. Featured speakers were Cynthia Cheng-Wun Weaver, Litigation Director at the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, Howard Zelbo, Senior Counsel at Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP, and Schuylar Bailer, the first trans NCAA D1 Men’s athlete. We thank AC Mariott for sponsoring Schuylar Bailer’s attendance.
The panelists discussed in detail the types of legislative attacks that the transgender community has been experiencing, the legal challenges facing those laws, and the legal landscape with respect to trans rights post Bostock v. Clayton County, Georgia.
We give an especially warm thank you to Nixon Peabody for sponsoring the event and to Gregory Hom from Nixon Peabody who served as the liaison.
