RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — College applications and high school graduation are the biggest worries for most 17-year-olds. For Gavin Grimm, it’s waiting for the nation’s highest court to decide whether he can use the boys restroom.
Grimm was born female but identifies as male. He heads back to Gloucester High School for his senior year this week as the U.S. Supreme Court considers whether to intervene in his case that challenges the county school’s policy barring him from using the bathroom of his choice.
For now, he will have to continue using a private single-stall restroom or a bathroom in the nurse’s office.
The Supreme Court recently ruled that the school board can keep Grimm out of the boys restroom at least until the justices decide whether to hear Grimm’s case.
