South Dakota bathroom bill puts state at center of transgender debate


SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – For Thomas Lewis, a high school senior who plays trumpet in the marching band and works evenings at a grocery store, South Dakota’s debate over transgender rights is personal.

Lewis, 18, who came out as transgender last year, has been speaking out against a bill that would prohibit public school students from using a bathroom or locker room for a sex other than theirs at birth. If the bill is signed by Gov. Dennis Daugaard, a Republican, by Tuesday, it will make South Dakota the first state to impose such a law.
