LGBT History Month
October is LGBT History Month, a month-long annual observance of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history, and the history of the gay rights and related civil rights movements.
To celebrate LGBT history month is to promote equality and diversity for the benefit of the public, raise awareness of LGBT identities and issues, help public understanding of the complex nature of gender, sex, and romantic and sexual orientation
Gavin Grimm's Case
The Gloucester County school board has asked a judge to dismiss a lawsuit filed by transgender teen Gavin Grimm who sued for the right to use the boys’ bathroom at his high school. The board argued that the school did not discriminate against Grimm and the restroom policy does not apply to alumni, as Gavin graduated in June - therefore, there is no issue to be settled by the court.
From PFLAG National
"In today's military, there are brave transgender people serving our country openly and proudly with 134,000 retired veterans, having done so with honor and sacrifice. The Commander-in-Chief demeans them with his latest tweetstorm proclamations. PFLAG stands proudly with them, their families, and future transgender individuals who would put their lives at risk for all of us ...."
"PFLAG's vision of an inclusive, respectful America will prevail. Our country is better than this."
