Billy Burleigh struggled with his sexual identity since the age of five. His first memory of this struggle was standing in front of the school he was attending, looking at all the other kids, wondering where he belonged, and having this thought, “God made a mistake, I’m a girl.” Billy did not share this thought with anyone but continued on to graduate from high school. He graduated college with a Bachelors and a Masters in Mechanical Engineering, and he swam competitively for the college he attended. On the outside, it appeared that Billy had it all pulled together.

But the struggle in Billy’s mind about his sexual identity did not go away. Billy fought his thoughts for years before agreeing with his thoughts. He transitioned to appearing as a woman, changed his legal documents, and presented as a woman for about seven years. But the problems he was trying to resolve only became worse. At this point Billy called out to God; he gave both his life and all of his problems to God. Now, Billy is married to a beautiful lady, has two daughters, a son-in-law, and is living for God.

Jane Robbins is an attorney and retired senior fellow with the American Principles Project in Washington D.C. At APP she worked on issues related to education, parental rights, and religious freedom; she testified about these issues before Congress and the legislatures of 12 states. Since retiring from APP she has focused on issues related to the sexualization of children in schools, healthcare, and the culture at large. Her articles on these topics have been published in numerous national media outlets. She also serves on the board of a new organization called American Achievement Testing, which is developing a traditional U.S. history curriculum to be offered to high schools as an alternative to current Leftist models. She is a graduate of Clemson University and the Harvard Law School.

"The administrative state book was written several years ago with two of my APP colleagues. It's an attempt to delve deeper into how the bureaucracy of the federal government really dictates so much state and local policy. It does have a couple of chapters about education -- how we got to the pathetic state we're in -- and the chapter about rigged federal research is especially applicable to the trans issue."

Erin Brewer developed a trans identity in first grade. She did everything she could to be a boy. Her teacher sent her to the school psychologist for assessment because her behavior was concerning. Thankfully the school psychologist did not affirm her, instead she came up with a plan for her mother and teacher to help Erin manage her difficult feelings. It took years for Erin’s trans identity to resolve but she is thankful that she got the help she needed to address the underlying cause of her trans identity rather than being told she was born in the wrong body and inherently flawed.

Erin grew up in Salt Lake City and earned a B.S. from Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts. She has a Doctorate in Instructional Technology and Learning Science from Utah State University.

Erin shares her deeply personal story to help others understand the damage that is being done to our children by the transgender movement.
