The board of Transgender Education & Advocacy (TEA), comprising of 3 transgender Kenyans, sues the state and the NGO Coordination Board for refusing to register TEA as an NGO. The state and the board oppose the case indicating that they could not register TEA because they could not tell the gender of the board members. The board also indicates that the applicants’ names on their national identity cards did not match the names submitted by the applicants when they applied for registration.
