After meeting with GLAAD and other transgender community leaders, the Los Angeles Times sent a reporter to cover Trans Pride L.A. on Saturday. We believe this is the first time the LA Times has covered Trans Pride since it started in 2000.
In a sharply worded ruling, the division concluded that the Fountain-Fort Carson School District needlessly created a situation in which the student, Coy Mathis, would be subject to harassment when it barred her from the girls’ bathroom even though she clearly identified as female.
D.C. police have declined to confirm whether they have arrested a male suspect for allegedly stabbing a 29-year-old transgender woman as many as 40 times in an abandoned house in Southeast Washington around 1 a.m. on Friday morning.
A transgender 6-year-old who identifies as a female should be allowed to use the girls' bathroom at her elementary school even though she was born a male, the Colorado Civil Rights Division ruled on Sunday.
This is the first ruling in the nation holding that transgender students must be allowed to use bathrooms that match who they are, and the most comprehensive ruling ever supporting the rights of transgender people to access bathrooms without harassment or discrimination.
In your apology, you said that you were sorry that you “didn’t stand up to people publicly ‘on [your] side’” who were calling others names. Putting “on my side” in quotation marks in your apology was interesting to me. We have all learned how to be on particular “sides” in life and for many years, the media has worked hard to make these sides as pronounced as possible to give people a sense of drama and tension. But we do not have to live that way if we don’t want to.
