Local Transgender student responds to bathroom protection reversal
A sophomore student at City High School, Miles Kleve says the guidance protection gave him a sense of relief, but now he says the fear is back.
“I think, it’s ridiculous that people can’t go into a certain bathroom because that’s not what’s in your pants.”
Kleve was 14-years-old when he realized he identified as a male.

Kleve says the transgender community felt less afraid. “we felt like, I can go in here, I can go where I feel I belong.”
