** Available on-demand any time of day and in time increments convenient to you through Session End Date above **, together with the Houston Bar Association, are pleased to present a special online CLE program designed to address the current concerns and issues associated with the rights and protections of the transgender community within our legal system. Our highly esteemed speaker, Phyllis Randolph Frye, is an Eagle Scout, a former member of the Texas A&M Corps of Cadets, a US Army veteran (1LT-RA 1970-72), a licensed engineer, a licensed attorney, a father, a grandmother and a lesbian wife. She is acknowledged as being the "Grandmother" of the national transgender legal and political movement. She is a senior partner in the Houston law firm of Frye, Oaks, Benavidez and O'Neil. Phyllis Randolph Frye is the first, out, transgender judge in the nation (and possibly - no one has disputed it yet - in the world)."
