OII-USA Dana Zzyym’s Lawsuit in Newsday!

This great piece in Newsday accurately describes Dana’s case, points out that some intersex people, unlike Dana, identify as men or women (as we have always made clear), and even features a great pic of Dana and Paul Castillo, the Lambda Legal staff attorney representing Dana in this lawsuit. Big thanks to Newsday for giving this groundbreaking lawsuit for equal rights the quality coverage it deserves, and go Dana and Paul!!!

    Thank you Dana I am having this trouble being given horrible service at medical providers because of the law not allowing me to match my gender markers or update them without unnessary surgical procedures. I believe I should have the choice to decide what I do to my body. thank you for fighting the status quo and bringing us all another step closer to true equality and justice and the pursuits of happiness. You inspire me.
