 In Her Skin: Growing Up Trans

Trina Sotira:  Writer, Editor, Assistant Professor

"'There is no room in our schools for discrimination of any kind, including discrimination against transgender students on the basis of their sex,' Attorney General Loretta Lynch said" (qtd. in Grinberg).

"If we are to achieve a richer culture, rich in contrasting values,
we must recognize the whole gamut of human potentialities,
and so weave a less arbitrary social fabric,
one in which each diverse human gift will find a fitting place."
