National Coming Out Day (USA)


National Coming Out Day was started by Robert Eichberg and Jean O’Leary to raise awareness of the fact that homosexuals exist. It has now been turned into a corporate event during which you can “come out” as whatever you want, including that Men can “come out” as Women, thus erasing the history of this event.

Jean O’Leary understood that transgender women are actually men. Well done, Jean!

Holloway v. Arthur Anderson & Co. (USA)

Ramona Holloway, a transsexual, claimed that Arthur Andersen and Company, an accounting firm, discriminated against her in employment on account of her sex and therefore violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The trial court granted Andersen’s motion to dismiss for lack of subject matter jurisdiction. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit affirmed. This 1977 case is effectively dated given the EEOC’s current position on these cases.
