Trans Girl Blocked From School Locker Room Causes Massive Student Walk Out

A transgender student was allegedly blocked from using the locker room at a Texas high school, and her classmates rallied for her, organizing a walk-out and protest in support of transgender equality on Wednesday morning. Video of the protest has been shared on social media, showing the students waving transgender and rainbow pride flags in a hallway and chanting while a teacher shouts at them “Go back to class!” The protest took place after a 16-year-old transgender Temple High School student posted on Instagram on September 22 that she tried to use the girls’ locker room, but a teacher blocked her and told her that she couldn’t use it even though she’s a girl.
