Gavin Grimm speaks out on Trump’s attack on transgender rights (VIDEO)Around the Nation, Breaking News, Top Highlights Thursday, February 23rd, 2017
Today on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” Gavin Grimm spoke with Peter Alexander about the Trump administration’s plan to retract the Obama-era order that allowed public school students to use bathrooms that matched their gender identity stating, “right now transgender students are probably feeling alone and they are probably feeling afraid because their government has just basically said that the protections that they do have, they don’t feel that those are deserving of still being there.”
On Grimm’s own experience as a transgender teen at Gloucester High School: “When you are a high school senior, a high school student or even just a student in general and you are someone who doesn’t necessarily fit any social norms or stereotypes, it can already be very difficult to get through life and avoid being bullied and stigmatized and discriminated against. And then to have a school board set this precedent for your school, saying the student should not be treated the same way as other students, it’s very difficult and it’s very frustrating.”
