Transgender Teen Gets School To Install Gender Neutral Bathrooms

When 18-year old Jonas Valentine came out as transgender, he felt isolated at school at first. “They then isolated me into the teachers’ locker room. They said students felt ‘uncomfortable’ with me in the normal locker room and bathroom. At first I felt like it was fair to the students, but now I’m realizing how unfair it is to myself.”
