Graduation for UIUC wrapped up last week, but now, some graduates are protesting, specifically about the ceremony. Some transgender students say their names were not correctly read during graduation. Transgender students have what are called deadnames. Deadnames are the names they receive at birth.

Edit: Now that I have witnessed the video, my belief is it was clear intent and an underline microaggression to all current transgender and nonbinary students at the Uni. Periodt.  :police:
