This note analyzes Gore, et al., v. Lee, et al., a case challenging Tennessee's birth control policy which explicitly prohibits trans people born in Tennessee from correcting their gender marker to accurately reflect their gender identity. The note begins with a description of the issues the lawsuit hopes to address and continues with a description of the parties, history of anti-trans birth certificate jurisprudence, an analysis of lawyering strategies, and concludes with First Amendment strategies which may be used to fight state laws requiring trans citizens to complete gender confirming procedures in order to correct their birth certificate gender markers.
