Florida court rules schools must allow trans students to use bathroom of their gender identity

A Florida federal court has ruled trans students must be allowed to use bathrooms that match their gender identity.

The case was centered around a 19 year old trans student, Drew Adams and used the boys bathroom until an anonymous report was made.

The school then instructed him to only use gender neutral bathrooms.

Fridaay, Judges of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit announced they are affirming a lower court’s ruling, arguing “a public school may not punish its students for gender conformity.”

Lamda Legal, who represents Adams,  shared the news, tweeting “a federal court just ruled that trans students must have access to bathrooms that match their gender.

Our client Drew Adams has been fighting for this right against his school in Florida since 2017. The 11th Circuit ruled in his favor.”
