School Board Member Recants His Vote Supporting Transgender Students: ‘I Do Not Support the LGBT’

Earlier today, I posted about a school district that voted unanimously to make things better for transgender students:

The East Aurora school board voted to unanimously approve a policy that affects transgendered students Monday night.

The new policy specifically states that transgendered and gender nonconforming students have the right use the restroom that corresponds to their gender-related identity that is consistently asserted at school. The student has the right to be addressed by the name they want to be called, too.

“A court-ordered name or gender change is not required, and the student needs not change his or her official records,” the policy states.

“In no case shall a transgender student be required to use a locker room that conflicts with the student’s gender-related identity,” the policy reads.

When a news story says it was a unanimous vote, it suggests that all the board members agreed on the policy.

That may not be the case.

Reader Zachary, like many of you, sent a note to the members of the East Aurora Board of Education (in Illinois) thanking them for their vote.

He received a response from board member Raymond Hull that suggests Hull wants to take back his vote on the issue:

Raymond Hull

Zachary, I do not support the LGBT. I slept on the truth; shame on me

I’ve emailed Hull to ask for more clarification, but I’m appalled that any school board member would say he doesn’t support a significant percentage of the students in his district.
