Two transgender children sue Tennessee over school bathroom law
The LGBTQ advocacy organization the Human Rights Campaign filed a lawsuit Tuesday on behalf of two transgender children over a Tennessee law that bars trans students and school staff from using public school restrooms that align with their gender identity.
The bill, signed in May by Gov. Bill Lee, a Republican, requires schools to provide a “reasonable accommodation” to students, faculty or staff who are “unwilling or unable” to use the public restroom or changing room that aligns with their birth sex.
It defines a “reasonable accommodation” as having access to a “single-occupancy restroom or changing facility” or “use of an employee restroom or changing facility.”
