Petition

Everybody has the right to pee in peace.

Lambda Legal client Drew Adams is a transgender student at Nease High School in Ponte Vedra, Florida.

Drew has been living as the boy that he is since 2015. He used the boys’ restroom when he started his freshman year, without any incident, until someone anonymously reported him. School officials then told him that he could only use the school’s gender-neutral restrooms. This singles him out and separates him from his peers. Lambda Legal is suing his school.

Lambda Legal clients Juliet Evancho, Elissa Ridenour and A.S. were transgender students at Pine-Richland School District in suburban Pittsburgh.

Until the beginning of their senior year, they used the correct restrooms without incident. But the school board caved to pressure from anti-LGBTQ groups and a few parents, and implemented a new policy that singled them out for discriminatory treatment. Lambda Legal sued the school in their senior year, and won. They’ve since graduated.

Not allowing transgender students to use the bathroom that matches their gender isn’t just wrong, it’s illegal. And Lambda Legal is taking school districts to court to put a stop to it.

We need you to support equality and dignity. Help us show schools across the country that they will be held accountable! And tell them that if they implement harmful and degrading policies that single out transgender students for harassment and discrimination, Lambda Legal will sue them. And we will win.
