 Gavin Grimm Biography

Gavin Grimm grew up in Gloucester, VA, and is the plaintiff in a federal transgender rights lawsuit that was headed to the Supreme Court but got sent back to the lower courts, and now may end up at the Supreme Court yet again in a few months.

He came out as transgender during his sophomore year at Gloucester High School. With his principal's permission, he used the boys' restrooms at school for almost two months without any problems, but then a handful of parents went to the school board to complain about Gavin. The school board held a public meeting to talk about his body. It was humiliating and frightening to see one adult after another stand up and say hateful things about him. Then the school board voted to ban Gavin from using the boys' restrooms at school. With the help of the American Civil Liberties Union, he sued his school.

The case worked its way up to the Supreme Court and was set to be argued in March 2017 but then the Supreme Court announced it was sending Gavin’s case back to the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals to be reconsidered in light of the Departments of Justice and Education pulling back the previous administration's Title IX guidance clarifying protections for transgender students. In 2019 Gavin won his case in the lower court and that win was upheld at the Fourth Circuit. In the spring of 2021, the school district asked the Supreme Court to again consider his case. We're waiting to find out whether they will.
