Updates on trans discrimination

Sorry, I'm too sick at the moment for anything but links.

Jillian Weiss has an in-depth post at Transgender Workplace Diversity on a transgender discrimination case in Connecticut. There, Connecticut's federal district court ruled that both Title VII and Connecticut law prohibit anti-transgender discrimination, but dismissed the plaintiff's suit on the evidence.

Also via TWD, a new survey of over 800 transgender veterans and former servicemembers documents the high prevalence of anti-trans discrimination, both in employment (more than one-third) and within the VA.

On the now concluded trial in Schroer v. Library of Congress:
Kentucky's governor reinstates an anti-discrimination executive order (covering sexual orientation and gender identity), while Louisiana's governor lets one lapse (covering only sexual orientation)
