Every year, millions of Americans make difficult decisions
about their jobs when facing some of life’s most challenging
moments and significant events. Often, circumstances
require working people to take leave to care for themselves
or loved ones. Unfortunately, transgender and non-binary
Americans can face unique and magnified barriers that
make access to leave even more challenging.

An estimated 1.4 million transgender people live in
the United States, yet they are often unsupported
as members of the workforce in the absence of
comprehensive and fully inclusive paid leave.

Transgender and non-binary people, like other
Americans, are eligible for up to 12 weeks of parental,
family care, or medical leave only if they qualify under
the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). However,
FMLA leave is unpaid — rendering it an inaccessible
option for many trans and non-binary people.

The designers of our built environment have created public facilities that are segregated by gender, such as public restrooms, locker rooms, jails, and shelters. Reliance upon gender segregation in our public spaces harms transgender and gender non-conforming people. This paper employs a minority stress framework to discuss findings from an original survey of transgender and gender non-conforming people in Washington, DC about their experiences in gendered public restrooms. Seventy percent of survey respondents reported being denied access, verbally harassed, or physically assaulted in public restrooms. These experiences impacted respondents’ education, employment, health, and participation in public life. This paper concludes with a discussion of how public policy and public administration can begin to address these problems by pointing to innovative regulatory language and implementation efforts in Washington, DC and suggests other policies informed by the survey findings.

The Crossroads Collaborative at the University of Arizona and Gay-Straight
Alliance Network collected data for this research brief through a series of
adult interviews, youth focus groups, and survey distribution beginning in
early 2012. Adult interviewees were invited to participate based on their local
and national work related to the school-to-prison pipeline (STPP) and their
knowledge of disciplinary practices and disparities. Focus group participants
were lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning (LGBTQ), and
straight-allied youth. These youth participated in a survey designed to learn
more about disciplinary practices within schools and the possible effects on
LGBTQ youth and those perceived as LGBTQ, as well as youth of color and
disabled youth. Youth surveys were accessed online as well as given out in
paper form to GSA clubs in high schools, drop in centers, youth conferences,
and youth camps across the country.

Gender is much more complex than “boys” and “girls,” but not too complicated for students of any age to learn about.
All students have a gender, express that gender each day, and are affected by gender stereotypes.

The purpose of this article is to advance a new understanding of gender as a routine
accomplishment embedded in everyday interaction. To do so entails a critical
assessment of existing perspectives on sex and gender and the introduction of
important distinctions among sex, sex category, and gender. We argue that recognition
of the analytical independence of these concepts is essential for understanding the
interactional work involved in being a gendered person in society. The thrust of our
remarks is toward theoretical reconceptualization, but we consider fruitful directions
for empirical research that are indicated by our formulation.

Transgender people face an uncertain legal climate, and efforts to include gender identity
in policies have been met with both successes and failures. These policies are often developed in the
legislative process, which directly involve public opinion. To date, there is only one study analyzing
American public attitudes toward transgender people. This research gap makes it unclear whether
people in general understand what transgender means and whether public support for transgender rights
depends on understanding and knowing transgender people. Since the population of transgender people
is estimated to be smaller than that of lesbian, gay, and bisexual people, examining whether and how
having a friend or family member who is lesbian or gay relates to transgender rights is important
to understand political coalitions and attitude change. This study examines public attitudes about
transgender rights in the USA. It finds that as respondents report being more informed about transgender
people they tend to have more supportive attitudes. Interpersonal contact with someone who is lesbian
or gay also leads to a secondary transfer of positive attitudes. About half of the secondary transfer
effect operates through a mechanism of attitude generalization: contact positively affects the opinions
people have on gay rights that then broaden to affect attitudes on transgender rights. Demographic
characteristics also indicate that predictors of transgender attitudes are similar to previous studies
regarding attitudes toward lesbians, gay men, and bisexuals. Further survey efforts need to consider
inquiring about transgender rights and attitudes, as this remains a research gap in need of scholarly
understanding.
