This guide is designed to help transgender individuals understand their legal rights in Washington State.
The current legal system assumes individuals identify as one gender, either male or female. While this guide provides an understanding of the current legal system, the ACLU recognizes that many people do not identify as male or female. A person may identify or express as a specific gender, both genders, or neither gender.
This guide will dicuss some aspects such as prohibit discrimination against transgender people; the proper rights for trans people (e.g using the restroom consistent with their gender identity, change their name and gender marker on identity document, etc).
If you have any relavant concerns, follow this guide.
