NEWBERG, Ore. (AP) - About 50 people rallied over the weekend at George Fox University and delivered petitions in support of a transgender student in a housing dispute.

The student lived in a female dorm for the past year but wants to live with male friends next year on campus, after completing a transition to become a man.

The university told KPTV (https://bit.ly/1m2wwhQ ) it’s a Christ-centered community that keeps residences single-sex because of theological commitments. The university has offered to let the student live alone in a single room or off-campus. The student has turned down that option and has a lawyer to help fight for campus housing with males.
