[Correction: In the podcast, I mistakenly attribute The Gender Bill of Rights as having been developed by ISNA but have subsequently read the following "The restatement of the International Bill of Gender Rights (IBGR) was first drafted in committee and adopted by the International Conference on Transgender Law and Employment Policy, Inc. (ICTLEP) at that organization's second annual meeting, held in Houston, Texas, August 26-29, 1993."
