A transgender man who claims he was kicked out of a city pool by Parks Department employees who wouldn’t let him use the men’s changing room has sued the city to try and stop it from happening again.
Bryan John Ellicott, a city employee who works for the Office of Emergency Management, claimed in a lawsuit filed Monday that three Parks Department employees violated his civil rights and discriminated against him based on his gender when he visited a Staten Island pool last July.
We salute Bryan and The Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund for standing up against discrimination. For more on the great work Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund does, please visit: http://www.transgenderlegal.org/
