Transgendered Blawg Review

Today is Transgender Day of Remembrance, a memorial to victims of transgender hatred or violence. Befitting the day, Blawg Review #84 is hosted by Jen Burke at her blog, Transcending Gender. Burke's Blawg Review is a two-fer. True to Blawg Review mission, she provides a wrap-up of interesting recent posts from the legal blogosphere. Many of the submissions that she received, she writes, "related to sex, relationships, and the legal implications of different family situations." Thus, she covers such topics as law and the cost of sex, the failure of intimate-violence prevention and de facto divorce. Burke also reviews posts on more bread-and-butter topics, such as blogging ethics, management and technology and work-life balance.

But the two-fer I mentioned comes in the first half of Burke's Blawg Review, where she provides an overview of key issues and top Web resources in the area of transgender law. She discusses topics such as gender violence and gender discrimination and provides pointers to sites such as the Transgender Law & Policy Institute, the National Center for Transgender Equality and the Transgender Law Center. Burke makes a convincing case for transgender law as an important and emerging field of practice.
