(LOS ANGELES TIMES) WASHINGTON — Kaprice Williams has been waiting four years for a new birth certificate.

Williams, 50, transitioned from male to female when she was 15, but some essential legal documents still do not recognize her as a woman.

That had not been an issue until a job interview went sour when her paperwork revealed she is transgender. Efforts to change her birth certificate had stalled because Williams, a native of Washington, has not had sexual reassignment surgery and cannot afford thousands of dollars in lawyer’s fees.
