A história de Renata, 38, cantora, transexual
"No primeiro chute, voei três metros. Caída no chão, senti algo vazando em mim, passei a mão pelo corpo, mas nada de sangue. Enquanto isso, eles chutavam e socavam meu amigo. Cheiravam a vinho barato, maconha, suor e adrenalina. Foi tudo muito rápido, alguns segundos apenas. Saíram correndo e rindo, enquanto nos arrastávamos pela Praça da República, no centro de São Paulo, lugar em que a agressão que sofremos resultou em hemorragia interna e na perda de um rim. Meu amigo teve lesão no nervo ciático e precisou de dezenas de sessões de fisioterapia para andar normalmente. Nosso crime? Existir.

TLDEF Denounces Ruling Allowing Virginia High School to Bar Transgender Teen From Boys' Restroom
TLDEF denounces a federal court ruling that prevents 16-year-old Gavin Grimm from using the boys’ restroom at Gloucester High School in Virginia as he starts back to school. On September 4, 2015, U.S. District Judge Robert G. Doumar denied a preliminary injunction requested by Gavin’s attorneys that would allow him to use the boys’ restroom at school as his discrimination lawsuit against the Gloucester County School Board continues.

As a result of the court’s ruling, Gavin must use a unisex bathroom as classes begin today, separating him from his peers.
