I sure will and will urge any one I know to do the same
What the DMV did to the transgender woman was reprehensible! If it had been me, I’d have left without my license, and my next stop would have been to the ACLU, Lambda Legal (lgbt rights legal agency) or other legal agency in the area, and the DMV and I would have been in court!!
