On 23 August 2013 the board of Transgender Education & Advocacy (TEA), comprising 3 trans Kenyans – Audrey Mbugua, Maureen Muia, and Annet Jennifer – sued the Kenyan State and the NGO Coordination Board for refusing to register TEA as an NGO. The State and the Board opposed the case, indicating that they could not register TEA because they could not tell the gender of its board members. The Board also indicated that the applicants’ names on their national identity cards did not match the names submitted by the applicants when they applied for registration.
