Bryan John Ellicott, 24, a transgender man, has sued the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation for discrimination, saying staff at a public pool told him to use the women’s locker room. The lawsuit asks the court to rule for the first time that denying transgender people use of a restroom or locker room that matches their gender identity is discrimination in violation of New York City human rights law, which bans discrimination based on “gender,” which include actual or perceived sex and a person’s gender identity, self-image, appearance, behavior or expression, whether or not that gender identity, self-image, appearance, behavior or expression is different from that traditionally associated with the legal sex assigned to that person at birth.
