Kim Mulkey, the head coach of the women’s basketball team at Baylor University, had strong words for parents who were concerned about female students’ safety on campus. After the women’s team clinched the Big 12 regular season title on Saturday, Mulkey used her postgame speech to defend her school, which has been under fire for a sexual assault scandal under former football coach Art Briles.
Law enforcement alleges otherwise: Officials say Mike Ulmer, 53, picked up the victim, 18, from Chester County High School on Feb. 16 and brought her to his home in Henderson, Tennessee. Ulmer serves as a pastor at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Henderson, and court records show the victim was paid to clean his house.
It has been more than a year since Lila Perry fought for her right to use the girls’ bathroom at her former Missouri high school. Perry, an 18-year-old transgender woman, made headlines in Sept. 2015 when she battled with officials at Hillsboro High School to use the facilities that aligned with her gender identity. Now a high school graduate, Perry tells PEOPLE that she is fearful for the transgender students she left behind at the school.
