Oct. 30, 2013: Another Trans Queen…But Can She Sit On the Women’s Throne?

October 30, 2013

Great article in USA Today: http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/10/12/iowa-college-crowns-transgender-homecoming-queen/2973971/. Another student — this time a college student in Iowa — was crowned Homecoming Queen. Not that I’m a big fan of beauty contests in general, but this is another testament to the acceptance of trans people by their peers.

She has a crown, and no one can take that from her. But can she sit on the women’s throne? Iowa’s non-discrimination policies, which have included transgender people since 2007, are being challenged in courts, with trans women filing suits aimed at allowing them to use women’s restrooms in public places. Two have won their cases, and one has lost. Here’s that USA Today article: http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/10/27/transgender-rights-bathroom-battles/3282141/.
