Students hit timing of event

Transgender activist will speak tonight

A transgender activist is scheduled to perform and give a talk Thursday evening at Needham High School, but student organizers are disappointed they couldn’t hold the event during the school day, when it would reach the students who are least likely to be educated about transgender rights.

Jonah Miller, a junior who is a member of the high school’s All Genders and Sexualities Alliance, which is hosting the event, suggested Ryan Cassata as a speaker after becoming a fan of his music.
