Keynote Presentation & Luncheon
Join the optional luncheon and keynote with Phyllis Randolph Frye, the first “out” transgender judge in the U.S., for “The Courage to Get Off the Fence.”
A senior partner at the law firm of Frye, Benavidez and O’Neil PLLC, in Houston, Frye devotes her practice to helping transgender clients change their names and genders on legal documents.
Frye, credited with being the “grandmother” of transgender law, will explore ongoing legal and political transgender issues of concern, such as anti-crossdressing criminal laws and ordinances, public restroom usage, and name-gender ID changes without surgery. Learn more about Frye in our feature article.
Read more about Frye in this issue of InsideTrack.
