Organizing for Transgender Rights: Collective Action, Group Development, and the Rise of a New Social Movement (SUNY series in Queer Politics and Cultures)

In 2013, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) updated its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (today known as DSM-5), replac ing the term “gender identity disorder” with “gender dysphoria” (Beredjick 2012). This change did not receive as much attention as the APA’s landmark reclassification of homosexuality in 1973, but it was significant nonetheless. A year later, the Department of Justice announced that discrimination on the basis of gender identity constituted sex discrimination under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the Department of Health and Human Services announced that it would no longer stop Medicare from covering gender reassignment surgery (McLaughlin 2015). And, by the end of 2016, twenty states, the District of Columbia, and hundreds of local jurisdictions in states without statewide protections (including Atlanta, Miami, and New Orleans), had laws on the books banning employment discrimination on the grounds of gender identity (Transgender Law Center n.d.). In short, in recent years, gender-variant people—including those we now call transgen der people—have won public policy victories that seemed unwinnable just a few short years ago.
