After consultation with numerous groups advocating for gender and sexual justice across New York City, the Center for Gender & Sexuality Law at Columbia Law School has synthesized in this report a set of key recommendations to the de Blasio administration, all designed to eliminate a wide range of disadvantages, invisibility, violence, marginalization, and discrimination that residents of New York su!er on account of gender and/or sexuality.

The recommendations contained in this Briefing book are organized into the following subject areas: Criminal Justice, Domestic Partnership, Education, Elders, Housing, Immigration, Labor, People Living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA), Sexual and Intimate-Partner Violence, and Social Services.
