Hey, Some Good News!

N.J. School Reverses Position, Will Let Trans Teen Attend As Girl She Is


It's always nice to see more schools letting trans kids be instead of shitting all over them for no good reason. Hooray for 13-year-old Rachel Pepe, who fought the school's transphobia with the help of Garden State Equality. She is super brave and amazing!

Garden State Equality, Lambda Legal, and the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network have pledged to continue working with Middletown Township Public Schools, providing staff members with the proper training to ensure that Pepe and other trans students will be able to receive an education free from discrimination.

Yay! More of this, please! I want to see anti-trans policies in schools fall as fast as anti-marriage equality laws.
