"Youth, Interrupted" is a series on trans teens in the United States whose lives have been dramatically disrupted by anti-trans "bathroom bills" and other political battles. Watch more from the series here.

In Part 2 of Gavin Grimm's story, the teenage civil rights leader is touched by the realization that his work has impacted young people across the nation. Broadly follows Grimm as he receives an unexpected batch of letters from children who are learning about his judicial case in their school.

As his journey is brought into perspective, Broadly visits with one of Gavin's greatest opponents: A local pastor and security guard at Gavin's school who has been fighting to prevent Gavin from using the boys bathroom throughout his high school career. In this final installment on Youth, Interrupted, Broadly comes face to face with an individual whose views are representative of conservative, anti-trans attitudes that plague the nation.
