(Riverside Press-Enterprise) A transgender woman is suing California Baptist University in Riverside for allegedly expelling her because of her gender identity.

Domaine Javier, 25, was expelled in August 2011 after she revealed in an episode of MTV’s “True Life” that she is biologically male.

“CBU suspended her, excluded her from campus, and expelled her for one reason: she is transgender,” the lawsuit said.
