When I was younger, locker rooms were often used as dressing rooms.
You’d lock the doors, you’d put the clothes on and you’d wash them off.
Now, locker room access is limited to one or two people at a time.
And you can’t change clothes on a table.
When I first started in high school, there were two bathrooms on the first floor of the building.
Now there’s one.
I think that’s changed the whole experience.
But you still can’t bring a change of clothes in.
In some ways, the locker rooms have been a haven for trans youth, for people who have been bullied or mistreated.
A lot of these trans kids are bullied at school, at home.
There’s no privacy for them.
It’s a very lonely, lonely place.
And they are afraid to go to the locker, to see what the others are wearing.
I’ve been in locker rooms with a lot of people, and it has definitely made a difference.
I used to have to wait in line for the bathroom, and then I would walk to the door and they would lock me in the stall.
It was awful.
I just remember looking at them, and thinking, I just want to go out, but they don’t want me to.
They don’t trust me.
I have to be myself.
I can’t be someone else.
And so, you know, you have to find someone who will be there for you.
There are so many other ways that the trans community has been affected by locker rooms, and you can go to any school, and the locker facilities are so often used by the same people.
When you go to a locker room with someone, you’re going to be the only trans person in there.
And this is a big, big deal, to have trans people not be seen as a part of a group.
It affects people who are just trying to survive.
There is no privacy in the locker area.
It is really isolating.
And I think it’s been very important to me, because I have a lot in common with these trans people.
I was raised in a trans household.
My mom had two trans sisters.
They were really close.
My dad, who is trans, is a very strong person.
He was a teacher and had a lot to say about trans issues.
He also came out as trans to my family, and he and my mom had a strong relationship.
And my mom was very supportive of me as a young person.
I remember being so excited that I could be accepted by my family.
And then, I had to put my trans identity on the back burner for so long, because my dad was very angry with me about coming out as transgender.
I don’t know if it was a trigger, or if it’s just that they were not used to the way I was living my life.
I thought I was just going to go home and just go to bed.
I didn’t realize that I was so different from everyone else.
So I’m very glad that my mom and my sister were there for me.
But, then, they got involved in the transition process, and that was the beginning of it all.
So, I was a very vulnerable person.
So it’s really important for trans kids, because a lot are really afraid to come out and talk about it, because they don’st have the support.
So if you talk about your transition, you are not safe.
And, in fact, I don`t know if that’s true for you, because it can really be very dangerous for you to tell anyone.
You know, some people can be extremely supportive of your transition.
I haven’t heard of any parents saying, “Oh, you shouldn`t tell anyone about your sex change, because you might end up hurting your family.”
It’s not like, “Well, if you tell your mom, you might hurt your family too.”
The problem is, you can really go into a bathroom and not be allowed to use the restroom.
You can’t go into the lockerroom and change in there without being harassed.
It`s really unsafe for trans people to use these facilities.
And also, you don’t have privacy there.
So there is a lot that trans people are dealing with when they transition, and they have to deal with transphobia.
You have to learn to be very aware of the things that are happening in the world, because trans people live in very, very isolated places.
It doesn’t really matter how you dress, how you walk, or how you speak.
You are not welcomed by people who might be different.
There has to be a level of social awareness.
But the other thing is, a lot people don` t understand that trans youth are really struggling with this.
They`re in really, really difficult situations.
So you have this really difficult transition, in a place where you have so many trans kids who
