University to student: No dorm room without costly surgery

by PageOneQ

Transman Kourt Osborn recently appeared on the Star Jones Show with Utah Pride Center's Yana Walton to discuss Southern Utah University's denial of on-campus housing to Osborn.

Osborn was denied a male dorm room because, while his driver's license shows him as male and he is undergoing hormone treatment, he has not had gender reassignment surgery to complete the transition. Osborn and Walton contend that it should not be a requirement to undergo costly medical procedures if one is unable or unwilling to do so in order for the university to recognize Osborn as a "real" transgender person.

Video of the exchange is available below, as broadcast on truTV's Star Jones Show.
