Sept. 20 was a hard day for some Edmonton queer and trans youth who watched their classmates leave their high school to join their parents at a protest happening nearby.

Demonstration organizers said they were protesting for the repeal of sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) curriculum, but those who work closely with youth say many queer and trans students felt like the target.
