‘Look at me’: Virginia governor confronted by transgender student on model policy
A transgender student confronted Glenn Youngkin over the Virginia governor's anti-trans policies at a CNN town hall on Thursday, 9 March.
Under Virginia's Department of Education (DOE) Model Policies, trans students would be prevented from participating in team sports and using bathrooms consistent with their gender.
“Look at me. I am a transgender man,” the student, named Niko, said.
"Do you really think that the girls in my high school would feel comfortable sharing a restroom with me?"
In response, the Republican continued to emphasise his "parents rights" agenda.
