GLADHours are hosted 3 times a year in conjunction with the Mass LGBTQ Bar Association. Join us this time to learn more about GLAD's transgender advocacy from Jennifer L. Levi, director of GLAD's Transgender Rights Project and one of our nation's leading experts on transgender legal issues.

Transgender people face the most basic and blatant discrimination every day - from being denied access to employment, housing, or healthcare, to being physically attacked because of the way they look or dress. Through the Transgender Rights Project, GLAD puts our litigation, legislative, and educational assets to work in a focused way to establish clear legal protections for the transgender community. Join us to learn more!
