Protesters gather again outside Santee YMCA over locker room access for transgender residents

More than 100 people gathered Saturday outside the Santee YMCA to protest rules allowing transgender residents access to the locker rooms of their choice, a smaller crowd than had met earlier in the week. While some yelled profanities at a few counterprotesters, there did not appear to be any violence, and sheriff’s deputies stationed near the back of the building never intervened. The rallies stemmed from a 17-year-old girl’s public account of briefly seeing a transgender woman by the showers in the Cameron Family YMCA. The teen said she was afraid that a man was nearby while she changed. The story gained national attention, and many of Saturday’s speakers described their cause as a fight between good and evil.
