Michelle Chapman and her transgender son Xander are ready for a fight. The two, along with Xander’s girlfriend Taylor, are at the Virginia General Assembly right now ready to speak out against a proposed bill which would make it illegal for transgender students and adults to use the restroom aligned with their gender identity in public buildings, including schools.
“He had a huge amount of anxiety about even being in there,” said Chapman about her son in an email sent to GayRVA. “This ridiculous bill will effect these kids. So we fight.”
