This chapter discusses the activism of The Indiana Transgender Rights Advocacy Alliance (INTRAA) to demonstrate how transgender advocates fought for legal protections as citizens of states without having an assimilatinist attitude. The INTRAA advocated measures in Indiana intended to prevent discrimination based on one’s gender identity or gender expression. They developed specific strategies for engaging local and state officials about the need for trans legal protections such as pushing for the amendment of Human Rights Ordinance of Bloomington, Indiana, and conducting public debate about the measure. Their activities exemplified the need to engage the state and simultaneously critique the state’s authority to control the definitions and privileges of sex and gender.

Keywords:   INTRAA, transgender advocates, gender identity, gender expression, trans legal protections
