Transgender Job-Seekers Face Discrimination – By Julie Bolcer

The pervasive discrimination faced by transgender job-seekers in New York and elsewhere was discussed Wednesday on WNYC FM in light of a devastating new report.

The report, “Transgender Need Not Apply,” from advocacy group Make the Road New York, was the subject of a conversation on The Brian Lehrer Show. Pauline Park, chair of the New York Association for Gender Rights Advocacy (NYAGRA), joined fellow guest Kendall Thomas, professor and director of the Center for the Study of Law and Culture at Columbia University School of Law.
