Yesterday, Blaze and I attended a rally on the steps of the Florida Capital, the purpose of which was to express our support for the rights of transgender students.

Leon County schools are actually doing a good job of passing policies that reflect a desire to keep all students safe, but on a national level, the government is taking away transgender student rights that were granted under the Obama administration. This will make these children much less safe.

There were many speakers who had emotional stories to share about their experiences with or as part of the trans community.
