In the entire Kentucky school system, according to the Fairness Campaign, an LGBTQ advocacy group, there is one openly transgender athlete playing on a school sports team.
One. Out of hundreds of thousands of students.
“In Kentucky’s entire school system, there is only one openly transgender girl we know about who is playing on a school sports team,” Fairness Campaign executive director Chris Hartman said in a statement. “But rather than tackle any of the state’s real issues, legislators decided to use their time and power to bully this student and others like her.”
