Bobby Hodgson Files Complaint on Behalf of Trans Activist

Former Fellow Bobby Hodgson (‘13) filed a complaint on behalf of a transgender woman whom police charged with “false personation” after she provided officers with her legal name and explained that she’d changed it after transitioning. The complaint was written about on the NYCLU website (“Trans Advocate Sues NYPD for Charging Her With ‘False Personation,’” Jan. 22). “The fact that Linda was actually charged … is absurd and outrageous, but it highlights how the NYPD continues to criminalize transgender people for existing,” Bobby said.
