7. The Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund has taken up Chase’s case, and is calling on the SCDMV to allow the teen to retake his picture.
“Chase’s freedom to express his gender should not be restricted by DMV staff,” TLDEF executive director Michael Silverman wrote in a letter to the DMV.
He added, “In the end, Chase was told that he could not wear makeup simply because boys typically do not wear makeup. It was not because his makeup acted as any type of disguise of his identity. Sex stereotypes like this do not justify a government agency’s restriction of constitutionally protected expression.”
