LEXIE CANNES STATE OF TRANS — After using a women’s restroom earlier this week at a college in North Carolina, a transgender student found herself surrounded by members of campus security and escorted off campus.
Andraya Williams was then informed by her school, Central Piedmont Community College, that she is suspended until she brought “medical proof” that she is female.
The college did say she can return if she agrees to use only a gender-neutral bathroom. They also said the police action by security was necessary for the safety of the other students.
Williams is asking that the college formally apologizes to her, allow her to use the women’s restroom and update the college’s trans policies.

‘In the interest of safety for the other students?’ So, they’re just going to assume we’re dangerous until we produce papers showing that we’re not?
