Hooley, Jesse. (Lecturer, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Sydney, Sydney NSW 2006) Normalising transgender and policing transgression: anti-discrimination law reform ten years on. Australian Feminist Law

Journal v.25 Dec 2006: 79-98

The effects of the 1996 New South Wales Transgender (Anti Discrimination and Other Acts Amendment) Bill on transgender politics and subjectivities are examined. The article discusses transgender politics in the 1990s and examines the campaign of the Transgender Lobby Coalition and its influence on the structure and wording of the Bill, the lobbying of the Transsexual Action Group to exclude cross dressers, and the arguments that cross dressers are less deserving of legislative anti discrimination protection.
