Oakland’s Queer Gym reacts to Trump’s rollback of transgender rights

The Queer Gym Responds to President Trump’s Transgender Bathroom Rollback. Produced by Angeline Bernabe and filmed by Jackeline Luna

In Oakland, the Queer Gym is coping with President Donald Trump’s recent rollback to former President Barack Obama’s guidelines last year on transgender bathrooms.  The 2016 guideline allowed transgender students in public schools to use the bathroom corresponding to the gender they identify with.  Members from the Queer Gym, previously known as the Perfect Sidekick Gym, are responding to the change by continuing to provide a safe space for the LGBTQ community and by raising money for the Trans Life Line, a non-profit crisis hotline in the Bay Area that helps trans people in need.
