Professora transexual é demitida e acusa escola de preconceito
A professora de filosofia Luiza Coppieters, de 36 anos, começou a lecionar no Colégio Anglo Leonardo da Vinci, em São Paulo, em 2009. Na época, ainda não havia assumido a transexualidade e era conhecida pelos alunos e professores da unidade particular como “Luizão”. Em 2012, deu início ao processo de transformação com o uso de hormônios femininos. No começo, usava roupas largas para que as transformações não ficassem visíveis para os estudantes e docentes. Porém, em 2014, resolveu deixar o medo de lado e revelou para todos que era transexual. Segundo ela, foi a partir daí que os problemas com a direção do Anglo começaram a surgir.
