As a transgender Virginian who works on LGBTQ+ workplace inclusion, I strongly support this well-researched, comprehensive guidance document. The policies proposed in this document follow widely established best practices and are in accordance with state and federal nondiscrimination law. This guidance is a necessary and encouraging step in ensuring Virginia is welcoming to all.
As a previous commenter noted, the opposition expressed in this forum reflects the necessity of this document. The common oppositions here rely on misconceptions, fearmongering, and pseudoscience that have no basis in reality. Transgender children deserve an education free from fear of harassment or discrimination, just as all students do.
