The head track and field coach at Lake Oswego High School claims his employment was terminated after he wrote letters to state officials lobbying for changes to transgender athlete laws.

John Parks wrote 2 letters to Peter Weber, Executive Director of the Oregon Student Activities Association, and state Sen. Rob Wagner in May, before and after the state finals.

Parks stated in the letters that current state law, which protects athletes who want to compete against the gender that best matches their gender identification, compromises the integrity of girls’ sports.

Parks told KATU that he supports transgender athletes and does not want them to be excluded.

He claimed he saw the crowd at the State Championships ‘boo’ a transgender athlete after they won a girls’ event.

Mary Kay Larson, Director of Communications for the Lake Oswego School District, stated on Monday that Parks is no longer employed by the district.

Parks is now challenging his firing, claiming that the district’s quick action hampered his ability to express his views to state officials.
