Melanie Moore attended the meeting and stood in front of a packed room of parents and students to advocate for transgender and intersex kids. The room booed much of what she said, and a Baptist preacher engaged her directly and spoke about how sin was at the root of the issue.
"God did not create (the sexes) that way," said Rev. Belton Platt. "When sin entered the world, creation was affected by sin."
"I didn't ask for a sermon," Moore replied.
Eventually, the crowd burst out singing "Jesus Loves Me," until Moore sat down.
