A transgender student at the O Colégio Pedro II in Brazil found an entire class of allies this month, proving that the LGBT movement is alive and well in South America.
The incident began when 17-year-old transgener student Maria Muniz was fined for wearing a skirt to school; the skirt conforms with the school’s student code of ethics mandating girls wear skirts and boys wear trousers.
