EDMONTON – Groups opposed to Alberta’s planned policies around transgender youth held rallies in Calgary and Edmonton over the weekend, with many of the attendees warning the plans will out trans kids and put their lives in jeopardy. Seventeen-year-old Jaidyn Wolf, who travelled from Red Deer to a rally at the provincial legislature in Edmonton on Sunday, said he’s had trans friends die by suicide and he wants to speak out for other trans youth who don’t have support at home. “I started advocating at my school and it took getting the cops involved to stop the harassment that was caused by me and my friends being outwardly trans and gay at our school,” Wolf said.
