Oklahoma lawmakers face criticism over an email that seems to warn female pages about the presence of a teenage LGBT group in the Capitol building.
According to the AJC.com, about 70 gay, lesbian and transgender students gathered Monday to discuss LGBT issues with lawmakers at the Oklahoma Capitol.
The group was dismayed to learn that during their visit, a page program supervisor sent an email around the Capitol building warning female pages that “cross-dressers” were in the building. The email informed the bio women that they would have access to a separate, private women's restroom.
Oklahomans for Equality posted a live video on it's Facebook page Monday showing the group marching up to the Speaker of the House's office to demand an explanation. But a staff member said the Speaker was unavailable.
Tense debate continues over transgender bathroom access in states around the country.
