Transgender Student's Surgery Stirs Controversy at Private College

A transgender student at Welch College says he was planning to stay with a Christian couple as he healed from the surgery. However, when they found out what it was for, he says they told him he wasn't welcome anymore. After a roommate outed Yanna last year, he says Welch College officials told him to keep quiet. Welch is a private university, so it isn't subject to the same laws forbidding discrimination that public universities are.
