Mother poses in General Assembly bathroom with trans son to protest bathroom bill

Xander and Michelle Chapman GAYRVA staff

Michelle Chapman and her transgender son Xander are ready for a fight.

The two, along with Xander’s girlfriend Taylor, are at the Virginia General Assembly right now ready to speak out against a proposed bill that would make it illegal for transgender students and adults to use the restroom aligned with their gender identity in public buildings, including schools.

“He had a huge amount of anxiety about even being in there,” said Chapman about her son in an email sent to GayRVA. “This ridiculous bill will effect these kids. So we fight.”

Xander and his mom are not alone today, as many are expected to speak out against the proposed bill which passed a subcommittee last week and heads for a full committee vote today.

GayRVA will be following this committee meeting, so stay tuned.
