Transgender population doubled! Where does your state rank?
The Williams Institute’s June 2016 survey reports that the transgender population doubled since 2011, the last time the number was estimated. The 2011 survey, pegged our numbers at just .03% of the population or roughly 700,000 people. That number has often been referenced by hate groups working against transgender progress with the meme to ‘protect all’ against being discomforted by an almost non-existent voiceless inconsequential minority. Add that idea to the inevitable albeit imaginary herds of perverts who would come out as trans to peep in bathrooms and presto, a vile minority to exclude, even kill, justified by a Christian Bible (which if they read embraced transsexuality three times)!

DOE must comply with transgender bathroom guidance
Transgender students at the Guam Department of Education will likely be allowed to use bathrooms consistent with their gender identity beginning next school year.

Superintendent Jon Fernandez told KUAM that GDOE will have to comply with the federal guidance in order to access over 25 million dollars in grant funding. Fernandez previously told KUAM that although the issue has not been prevalent in the past, “GDOE as an institution has been very aware of the diversity that we have within our school system, and that includes ethnic diversity, sexual identification and gender identification.” He continued by saying the department has done its best “to ensure that we’re welcoming and accommodating to the extent that it makes sense.” He added accommodations have been made for employees in the past.
