Kathleen Peratis, The Forward, July 24, 2008. A brief discussion of who transgender people are, and the differences between transgender and gay people.
You have to hand it to Rep. Barney Frank, the man knows how to empathize. In the first-ever congressional hearing on workplace discrimination against transgender people, held by the House in late June in an Education and Labor subcommittee, Frank said he understands what it means to be trapped in the wrong body — because that is what happens when his legislation gets bogged down over in the Senate.
The lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender — or LGBT, for short — press called the congressional hearing on gender identity discrimination “historic” and “groundbreaking.” The mainstream media pretty much ignored it, but the issue is worth keeping an eye on.

Whose Clients Are They? Contacting Putative Class Members
Cara E. Greene and Jill Maxwell, Labor and Employment Law, Vol. 35, No. 3, Spring 2007 www.abanet.org/labor
The prosecution and defense of class actions involve an abundance of ethical considerations. Attorneys must balance zealous advocacy with the governing rules of professional responsibility. For instance, ex parte communications are often an effective and cost-conscious way to glean information, but attorneys on both sides must consider whether contact with putative class members is permissible and, if so, what form that contact may take. With a little forethought, however, lawyers can ensure that they do not overstep ethics rules when contacting putative class members.
