Hello, I'm Jayden. I'm a trans boy who goes to Memorial High School here in San Antonio, Texas.  I would like you to stand with me as I demand equality for trans students at Memorial High School and ask my administration to respect my chosen name and pronoun and allow me to sit with my peers on the proper bus.
--------------

We take a bus in the middle of the day from Memorial to the Fine Arts Academy. Our buses were at first normal, then separated by gender with boys on one side, girls on the other, and then yesterday they were a "boy" bus and a "girl" bus. I got on the boy bus, and the bus driver started giving me a dirty look. She told me to get off the bus, and I told her I was a boy, but she wouldn't listen. She contacted some other bus driver, said "some girl won't get off the bus", and I kept correcting her I was a boy. Then, some school cops came. They got on the bus and asked for my information (name, ID number, grade, etc.) They didn't even care when I told them the bus lady was discriminating me. I had called my mom to pick me up and take me to the Academy, and when she came, the cops also took her information (name, phone number, address, license, etc.) I was the one in trouble, for what?

 Stand with me and ask Edgewood ISD to respect trans students self worth and to train their teachers with LGBTQ sensitivity training from now on.
