Know Your Rights for the Transgender Community

September 19, 2011 San Francisco Nation Layers Guild

Our four manuals for the transgender community and their allies have been
updated with the latest law and resources. Find out your rights or the
rights of your friends, family members or clients by downloading the

Criminal Law


Employment Law


Immigration Law


and Housing Law manuals (pdf).


* How are transgender arrestees housed in San Francisco jails?
* Can employers require employees to dress according to birth sex?
* Does gender identity help with an asylum claim?
* Am I protected by state law if I think my landlord evicted me
because I’m transgender?

These questions, and many others, are addressed and answered, with
emphasis on Bay Area law and practices.
