a federal lawsuit Tuesday that challenges North Carolina’s requirement that forces trans people to undergo gender-affirmation surgery to have their birth certificate changed to reflect their proper gender identity.“It’s dehumanizing and demoralizing being denied a birth certificate that reflects who I am.

I cannot afford surgery and do not have access to surgery through my health insurance,” plaintiff Lillith Campos, 45, who is a transgender woman from Jacksonville, N.C., said in a press release.“It is wrong for North Carolina to require that I obtain surgery in order for them to recognize me as the woman I am,” Campos continued.
