​Karkat Stafford admitted he’s made some new friends since joining a club
at the library. But he’s lost some, too.Stafford, a 15-year-old student at
Mark Morris High School, joined the Rainbow Community, an LGTBQ club
(Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer or Questioning ) for middle and
high school students hosted at the Longview Public Library, less than a
year ago. Stafford, born Chloe, identifies as bisexual and transgender,
transitioning from female to male. He peeks out from behind a few wisps of
short red hair. A pink pin is fastened to his black shirt. On it, a unicorn
with a rainbow mane peers back..
