International Conference on Transgender Law and Employment Policy: Annual Proceedings and Newsletters

Trans activist Phyllis Randolph Frye created and hosted the annual International Conference on Transgender Law and Employment Policy (ICTLEP) in Houston, Texas between 1992 and 1997. Frye writes: "ICTLEP has held six annual conferences...dealing with issues of transgender law and employment policy. Each year (except year six) many of the reports and presentations are transcribed by court reporters and are published along with other relevant documents to become that year’s printed and bound Proceedings book. These are "THE" REFERENCE BOOKS to begin serious study of transgender legal issues and of progressive strategies for legal changes!" This collection contains 118 objects (legal articles, court cases, and transcribed speeches) from the conferences’ Proceedings books, three objects describing the history of ICTLEP and the contents of the books, and two ICTLEP newsletters. These materials address trans people’s legal rights in terms of health care, marriage, imprisonment, military service, housing, and employment. Many discuss empowerment through coming out, and through activist participation in the transgender movement.
