12:00 PM - 2:00 PM Law School Faculty Bill Berman and Jamie Langowski will deliver a talk, “Transcending Prejudice: Gender Identity and Expression-Based Discrimination in the Metro Boston Rental Housing Market”

Description: Suffolk Law School faculty William Berman and Jamie Langowski will share with attendees the results of a first of its kind empirical research study that gathered statistically significant data related to the level of discrimination that is occurring in the rental housing market based on gender identity and expression. Housing discrimination can occur with a smile and often those being discriminated against are not aware that they are being treated differently. Surveys reveal that transgender and gender nonconforming people are aware that some discrimination is occurring, but very little statistically significant data exists related to actual levels of discrimination in the housing market. The Suffolk University Law School’s Housing Discrimination Testing Program conducted matched paired testing between December 2015 and June 2016 of the Metro Boston rental housing market. Transgender and gender non-conforming people were paired with gender conforming cisgender people and sent to view available housing within a short period of time of one another. The tests revealed that transgender and gender non-conforming people were 27% less likely to be shown additional areas of the apartment complex. 31% less likely to be offered an incentive to rent, 12% more likely to be told negative comments about the apartment or neighborhood, and 9% more likely to be quoted a higher rental price. The authors will discuss the study and the current status of the law. Attendees will learn about empirical research related to discrimination testing and the levels of discrimination occurring in the rental housing market based on gender identity and expression.

Join us for popcorn and a screening of Pan’s Labyrinth by Guillermo de Toro.

Pan's Labyrinth is a 2006 dark fantasy film written and directed by Mexican filmmaker Guillermo del Toro. The story takes place in Spain in May–June 1944, five years after the Spanish Civil War, during the early Francoist period. The narrative of the film intertwines this real world with a mythical world centered on an overgrown abandoned labyrinth and a mysterious faun creature, with whom the main character, Ofelia, interacts. Ofelia's stepfather, the Falangist Captain Vidal, hunts the Spanish Maquis who fight against the Francoist regime in the region, while Ofelia's pregnant mother Carmen grows increasingly ill. Ofelia meets several strange and magical creatures who become central to her story, leading her through the trials of the old labyrinth garden. The film employs make-up, animatronics, and CGI effects to bring life to its creatures. Del Toro stated that he considers the story to be a parable, influenced by fairy tales.
