Flashback video - Transgender student defends his rights during hostile school board meeting

With the coordinated attack against our trans kids by conservatives still prevalent, this video clip is incredibly pertinent. In 2015, trans teenage Gavin Grimm sued his school board in Virginia for the the right to use the boys bathroom. It was a long and arduous fight which he finally won in June of this year when the Supreme Court allowed a lower court victory he attained to stand.

It wasn't an easy victory. You can see in this video how in the past, Grimm had to speak at a school board meeting attended by some very adversarial people. Some of the things he says are very poignant, particularly when it comes to the behavior of adults as opposed to children when talking about trans kids in general. We would all do well to listen and remember.
