Trans Girl Fined For Wearing Skirt, Boys Wear Skirts To Class In Protest

Students at a high school Brazil staged a protest in support of a transgender student, with boys and girls wearing skirts to class. The protest comes nine days after student Maria Muniz was fined by school officials at Colegio Pedro II after wearing a skirt.

Even better, the school overturned their decision shortly after the students' demonstration, with the school's principal saying it will consider relaxing its dress code.

"For me, wearing a skirt was about expressing my freedom over who I am inside and not how society sees me," Muniz told Orange News.

"I am really happy about the way my classmates supported me and hope it serves as an example to others to feel encouraged to do the right thing," she added. "I was always taught at school to accept who you are. I am only trying to live that."

School officials also posted the pic above of students on social media, where it's gone viral under the hashtag #VouDeSaia.
