Why Gavin Grimm’s Case Will Reverberate for All Trans Students
Why Gavin Grimm’s Case Will Reverberate for All Trans Students

Gavin Grimm, the courageous transgender teenager who stood up to challenge his school’s mistreatment of him, will have his day in court. Last month, for the first time, a federal appeals court ruled that a public school must comply with the U.S. Department of Education’s policy that a transgender boy be treated like all other boys in the school, including being given access to the boys’ restroom. On April 19, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit ordered a trial judge to reinstate Gavin’s claims of discrimination under Title IX, the provision of federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in education. The Fourth Circuit also ordered the trial judge to reconsider whether Gavin should be allowed to use the boys’ restrooms at school while the lawsuit continues.
