I couldn’t be happier or prouder about this news today, and to have played a role in it!

As stated in the press release by Lambda Legal, who are representing my friend and colleague Dana Zzyym in their groundbreaking lawsuit for a non binary passport:
“The Intersex Campaign for Equality and its Founding Director, Hida Viloria, played a critical role in bringing Dana’s case forward and in advising Lambda Legal on intersex and nonbinary issues.”
