Chilean school for transgender children helps kids escape bullying
Written by CockyRadio on 17/05/2019
For more than a year, Amaranta School in Chile has been helping trans children to escape bullying and discrimination suffered at mainstream schools.
The school, which is believed to be the first school predominantly for transgender children, opened in 2017 with just five students and now has 38 pupils aged six to 17, the BBC reported.
The school is named after Mexican transgender politician Amaranta Gómez Regalado and provides a safe learning environment for trans children.
Among the student population, 22 to 23 identify as transgender—the other pupils tend to be siblings and friends of the trans children.
