In a case of alleged discrimination, a New York judge has denied the motion of a Catholic school in Queens to dismiss charges brought by former teacher Marla Krolikowskii, who says she was fired after coming out as transgender.
“Our relationship has been — we’ve never fought,” Mr. Leedom said. “We’ve argued or had differences of opinion, but it’s never been dramatic of any kind. And we’ve always been very close and compatible — shared everything.”
This week, spokespeople from RUSA LGBT, an organization of Russian and Russian-speaking LGBT people living in the United States, have earned several media hits and opportunities to tell their story and tell a US audience what they can do to help.
A Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for individual complaints filed by transgender immigrants held in U.S. federal immigration detention and processing facilities has yielded a total of 186 individuals since 2008.
The complaints of most of these people--169--are described in documents released by the U.S. Office of the Inspector General (OIG) through the FOIA. Seventy of them allege sexual assault or rape and 34 reported being segregated in isolation for indeterminate periods of time. Harassment and assault also played a role in 24 of these cases.
