Jan Buterman (Canada)

buterman2013-brick.JPGJan Buterman, a substitute teacher, is a woman who identifies as a man. He was fired from by the Greater St. Albert Catholic School Board in Alberta, Canada, when he told the school board he has gender dysphoria.  Buterman has filed a complaint with the Alberta Human Rights Commission.

Gender Identity Watch opposes employment discrimination based on disability and sex stereotypes, and we hope Buterman prevails.

Discrimination case pits transgender rights against those of a religious school after teacher fired for changing gender.
