Lila Perry is a transgender student at Hillsboro High School in Missouri. Since Lila identifies as female, she has been changing for gym class in the girl's locker room, although she is still physically male. She opted to drop gym class because she didn't feel safe or comfortable, something a lot of people have wanted to do, but for far less drastic reasons.

On Monday, nearly 200 students left class, some in support of Lila, some in opposition. Whether or not they felt strongly, all students involved in the walkout definitely wanted an reason to get out of school for the afternoon.
