TGP reporter Adam Sharp attended the event and had a chance to speak with student Lila Perry.
Perry says she was asked to use a gender neutral bathroom but that it was “dehumanizing” and that’s why he started using the girls lockeroom and bathroom.

Lila Perry: I’m fighting for transgender rights not just for me but for all transgender students across the state… I used the girls restroom and people kind of lost it.

Adam Sharp: And there were reports that there was an extra bathroom made available to you. Is that correct?

Lila Perry: It was. But it’s very dehumanizing to be reduced to just “gender neutral” to where I feel like they’re just going to take all of us and put us in our own bathroom which I don’t like.

Lila Perry: They just tell me they want to be left out of it and they also don’t accept me being transgender.
