Do you remember a year or so ago, the story of a young transgender girl in Oklahoma went public?
Or if you are like me, remembering yesterday is a stretch.
At any rate, Katie is now 17 and is graduating high school and here is the story of a young girls bravery to be herself!
Katie Hill is a transgender teen from Bixby whose story
was chronicled in an award-winning Tulsa World series in May 2011,
BIXBY — The graduating seniors at Bixby High School walk to their
seats in the Mabee Center under a sword salute by the Marine Corps
Junior ROTC students of Lt. Col. Randy Hill’s class.
Fashion among Bixby’s senior class girls dictates many wear neon-hued
platform stilettos with their Spartan blue graduation gowns and caps.
About one-third of the way through the alphabet, Hill’s daughter,
Katie, glides across the stage, and the school administrators offer her a
steadying hand down the stairs, as they do for every senior girl — even
though Katie is wearing sparkly flat sandals.
