Sacramento district raises transgender pride flag

Sacramento City Unified School District held an event this week to raise the transgender pride flag over its headquarters in advance of the Trans Day of Visibility on March 31.

The Sacramento Bee reports that the event was held to show support for transgender students, especially during a time when schools have become the focus of hundreds of anti-LGBTQ bills across the country.

“We are all here today in solitary and understanding that every student deserves to be seen, every student deserves to be supported, and that every student deserves to be loved,” said school board President Chinua Rodes. “This is especially important for students who are historically most vulnerable.”
