Mom Of South Florida Trans Student Athlete Expresses Gratitude But Sad Over Loss Of Privacy

The family of the transgender student at the center of a controversy involving Monarch High’s girls’ volleyball team has received support but lost privacy. Jessica Norton, an information management specialist at the school, publicly identified herself as the mother of the girl for the first time on Monday, through a statement from the Human Rights Campaign. She said, “The outpouring of love and support from our community this past week has been inspiring, selfless, and brave.” But she feels that a lot of things were taken from her family too, including their privacy, sense of safety, and right to self-determination. Norton also is one of several school officials who were reassigned from Monarch High, pending the outcome of an investigation.
