Guests Drew Adams, Tara Borelli



(May 1, 2019)  In the last two episodes of OutCasting, OutCaster Andrew spoke with Paul D. Castillo, an attorney at Lambda Legal, about Title IX, which prohibits sex discrimination in educational institutions that receive federal funding.  They focused on Title IX’s protection of transgender students and the surrounding legal and political developments.

Now we expand on that discussion by talking with Drew Adams, a transgender student who sued his high school for discrimination, and Tara Borelli, an attorney at Lambda Legal who worked on his case.  Drew decided to take legal action because his school denied him access to the boys’ restroom after receiving an anonymous complaint.  He won his case on the grounds of both Title IX and the equal protection clause of the constitution, but the school has appealed the decision.  The appeal is currently in process.

In this episode of OutCasting, OutCaster Andrew speaks with Drew and Tara about the process of suing Drew’s school, what it was like, how the case went, and what its significance is.
