Gender Justice Visits Twin Cities Pride
Gender Justice staff spent the weekend of Twin Cities Pride debunking myths about trans student athletes and talking to Minnesotans about transgender students' legal rights at school. We're on a mission to make sure every Minnesotan knows that respecting trans students' rights at school isn't just a suggestion — it's the law.

Opponents of transgender people are flooding platforms with dangerous and calculated disinformation, seeking to super-charge their politics by targeting transgender, non-binary and gender non-conforming student athletes for discrimination at school.
This fact sheet provides current talking points to combat these false narratives and tell a true and compelling story about trans students’ participation in sports.
Earlier this year, Gender Justice announced a major settlement with the Anoka-Hennepin school district on behalf of our client Nick, a transgender man and former student athlete in the district.
The Court’s decision in Nick’s case represented a big win for transgender students across the state. What had formerly been merely “suggested guidance” from the Department of Education is now enshrined in Minnesota law: Trans students are entitled to use the bathrooms and changing facilities that align with their gender identity.
