It’s been 10 years since Connecticut rightly prohibited discrimination in employment, housing, and public accommodations on the basis of “gender identity and expression.” Still, to many, “gender identity or expression” continues to mean merely the status of being “transgender”—that is, having a male gender identity despite being assigned female at birth, or vice-versa.

But “gender identity or expression” encompasses more than just the “T” in LGBTQ; it includes the whole range of gender identities, including people who do not feel exclusively male or female.
