Transgender Actor Claims It Was A ‘Human Rights Violation’ That Airline Employee Misgendered Him

 A transgender actor claimed that he suffered a “human rights violation” late last week after being “misgendered” by a Delta Airlines employee.

Tommy Dorfman, a man who claims that he is a woman, was the person allegedly holding the camera at New York-LaGuardia International Airport (LGA) when he says that an employee with Delta Airlines misgendered him.

In the video, Dorfman complains that he was “misgendered” because the airline employee called him a “he.”

“It wasn’t intentional, but if you want to take it personal, that’s also okay,” the employee responded.

Dorfman continued by complaining that another woman “intentionally” misgendered him twice.

“You’re being condescending and if you want to continue, I have full authority to escort you out the building right this moment if you want to play that game with me,” the employee fired back. “Would you like to continue three days before Christmas? I really don’t mind.”

“I’m good,” Dorfman responded.

Dorfman claims that he was the victim of a “human rights violation” because of the incident.

“When you try to advocate for yourself at @delta and are met with even more transphobia and threats of being arrested at LaGuardia,” Dorfman wrote in a now-deleted social media post.


“Tristan, the employee, said he was fine with me posting this,” Dorfman continued. “Didn’t realize it was condescending to flag a human rights violation after another employee misgendered me incessantly.”

Delta said that it was “aware of the video and looking into the matter, including reaching out to our customer to understand more about what occurred.”
