📚 Out magazine is one of The Advocate's sibling publications. It's been around for decades and covers fashion, media, and celebrities.

Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is doubling down on her transphobia. In an interview on Monday, she again attacked trans girls who are student-athletes.

Also, Haley, please stop calling trans girls "biological boys." K, thanks.
