In re John/Jane Doe

In November 2000, the Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities (CHRO) issued a landmark ruling stating that all transgender people are protected by Connecticut’s sex discrimination prohibitions.  Citing recent cases protective of transgender people, including two brought by GLAD, the CHRO adopted a reading of Connecticut law to include a broad range of people, writing that “…our intent is to see that justice is done for each individual – transsexual or non-transsexual, male or female, straight or gay, black or white, rich or poor – so as to recognize each person as a unique and valued member of our great human family.”  GLAD filed briefs in this case on behalf of itself, The Connecticut Coalition for LGBT Civil Rights, the Connecticut Women’s Educational and Legal Fund, the Human Rights Campaign, the National Center for Lesbian Rights, FTM International and Gender PAC.
