'Schools therefore cannot segregate students based on sexual orientation'

AUGUSTA, Maine - A lawyer for the Maine Human Rights Commission told members of the state board today that requiring all students to use "biology-based" restrooms and locker rooms in the state's schools is illegal and cannot be allowed to continue.

"Schools cannot discriminate against sexual identity or gender identification. Schools therefore cannot segregate students based on sexual orientation and identity," commission legal counsel John Gause said at today's commission meeting, where he was unsuccessful in convincing the board to adopt immediately a set of recommendations.

"I think we need to have a public hearing. That's the only way to make sure we issue guidance that applies to everyone. If you're eliminating one group in favor of another group, you're giving up part of your freedom," he said.
