Are there only two genders?

Who is Liam?

Liam is a 12-year-old student at Nichols Middle School in Middleborough, Massachusetts. 

He was punished by the school for wearing a t-shirt that says, “There are only two genders.”

Why what happened to Liam matters

Students don’t forfeit their free speech when they walk into school. It’s not just about a shirt—it’s about government officials telling a middle-schooler that he can’t say something that’s important to him, just because they disapprove of what he said. That’s not freedom.

If the government can censor Liam, it can censor any student.

The School’s Actions are Illegal

All students have the constitutional right to express their free speech without having to fear being punished by school officials. They can’t be forced out of the classroom for exercising their rights.

That’s why Alliance Defending Freedom and the Massachusetts Family Institute are suing the Town of Middleborough and school officials in federal court on his behalf. And you can stand with Liam, too.

Send a strong message: We the people stand with middle-school student Liam Morrison. We stand behind the truth that we are created male and female. Every American has the right to speak freely—that right is given by God and protected by the U.S. Constitution.
