Gender Identity, Expression, & Transgender

Transgender is an umbrella term for people whose gender identity, expression or behavior is different from those typically associated with their assigned sex at birth, including but not limited to transsexuals, crossdressers, androgynous people, genderqueers, and gender non-conforming people.

Recent guidance issued by the federal government confirms that fair housing laws protect persons from housing discrimination due to their gender identity, gender expression, or for being transgender under the federal protection of gender.
