I am a disabled Marine Corps veteran of Vietnam. I have had to learn my rights under the ADA and Veterans Administration the hard way. It is my desire to enable others to learn their rights without going thru the same process that I did.

This page applies to TRANSSEXUALS If you live in Washington State you have protection under WaADA and the State of Washington Human Rights Commission. However, if you live outside of Washington you have no protection under Federal ADA or the EEOC. If you live in another state find out if you are covered under any other disabilities, such as depression or endocrinology. There is a high incidence of suicide related problems in the transsexual community, if you have such problems then you may be covered. Check with your mental health provider.
