TWIN FALLS, Idaho – Twin Falls High School is a “battle zone” for transgender rights that’s too hostile for some LGBTQ students, who allege they were harassed during the school’s “blue versus pink” spirit week day.

The student council changed its annual “boys versus girls” spirit week event to a “blue versus pink” day to accommodate transgender students.
