A New Fairfield High School sophomore has been named a member of the 2020 class of Human Rights Campaign Foundation Youth Ambassadors. 15-year old Gia Parr will join 12 other LGBTQ advocates across the country in the program. Parr was the first to come out as transgender at her middle school after transitioning from male to female before the start of eighth grade. To let her classmates know, she and her parents sent a letter to the entire middle school. She is part of The GenderCool Project, a national storytelling campaign that focuses on who transgender youth are rather than what they are. Parr is a founding member of her middle school’s GSA club and a member of the high school Peace Project.
