Transgender Identity Around the World: The United States
This is the final installment of our series on transgender identity around the world, produced and hosted by Worldview production assistant Anna Waters. Gavin Grimm is a teenage transgender activist who sued his Virginia school district for banning him from the boys’ restroom in his public high school. After a years-long legal battle that took Grimm to the Supreme Court, a federal judge finally ruled in May that the district engaged in unlawful discrimination. Now a freshman at Berkeley City College, Grimm joins us to discuss his legal fight and experience growing up in the United States as a transgender person.
