Default what rights do transgender people have?

I have been wondering,since I am trangender, what rights do I have? I mean, can my school give me a suspension because I am transgender? I am just wondering. I wanted to know what's right and what's wrong.

Depends on where you live.

I'm not sure where you live, but in the States the laws vary greatly from state to state.

Know Your Rights - Transgender People and the Law | American Civil Liberties Union

is a nice little website detailing it.

Well, less in some places... more in others.

You cannot get suspended from school from being trans; that would be discrimination. Looking at other rights... In Buffalo and Tompkins County, people are protected from discrimination based on sexuality AND gender identity. Anti-discrimination regarding public employment is protected in the whole of New York I believe. In order to change your sex markers in NY, you need to get some sort of surgery and a letter from the surgeon, except for NYC which requires a court order. In New York "sex reassignments are not recognized for the purpose of marriage", meaning (I think) if you at FTM you cannot marry a woman and if you are MTF you cannot marry a man.

Not sure about what else. D:

Thanks for the advice. I'll keep researching on this and I'll see what I can find.
