A seven-year-old girl has written a poem for her transgender teacher who is believed to have killed herself.
Daisy Moreton read out the poem at a march celebrating the life of Lucy Meadows in Accrington in Lancashire, England.
‘Makes you happy
in high spirits
said kind things
Made us feel good
one of a kind
Those involved in the rally met at St Mary Magdalen’s school, where Miss Meadows taught, before marching to Accrington Town Hall.
After a local newspaper ‘outed’ her last December, the Daily Mail also reported on her transition.
Columnist Richard Littlejohn wrote an opinion piece asking whether anyone had thought of the ‘devastating effect’ on pupils of their teacher’s change in gender.
Over 210,000 people signed a petition calling for the sacking of Littlejohn, which was delivered to the offices of the Daily Mail.
