Details of the legal case Zzyym v Kerry
This federal discrimination lawsuit was filed against the U.S. State Department on behalf of an intersex client, Dana Zzyym, denied a U.S. passport because Dana could not accurately choose either male or female on the passport application form, and the form does not provide any other gender marker designation. Though many intersex people identify as male or female, some – like Dana – do not.
Admission was free with lunch available.
Date and time: Wednesday 26 October from 12:10 pm – 1:15 pm
Location: Jerome Greene Hall – Room 646, Columbia Law School, 435 W 116th St, New York, New York 10027
