The backers of a referendum to overturn a California law giving transgender students protections including the right to use the public school restrooms of their choice failed to gather enough voter signatures to qualify for the ballot.

Filmmaker and activist Christopher Lee fought to bring light to the struggles of transgender people. Now his untimely death is speaking proposed legislation in Sacramento.
