In a victory for transgender rights, a federal judge ruled Friday that a Virginia school board’s policy which barred a transgender student from using the bathroom that corresponded to his gender identity is unconstitutional. The case was brought by the ACLU on behalf of Gavin Grimm, a former Virginia student. Judge Arenda Wright Allen wrote, “Transgender students are singled out, subjected to discriminatory treatment, and excluded from spaces where similarly situated students are permitted to go.” Grimm celebrated the ruling, tweeting, “I promise to continue to advocate for as long as it takes for everyone to be able to live their authentic lives freely, in public, and without harrassment and discrimination.” Click here to see our interview with Gavin Grimm.
