STATEMENT AGAINST ANTI-TRANSGENDER LEGISLATION
As an organization, we find the continuing attack on transgender children and families in several states deeply disturbing. Our neighbors to both the north and the south suffer this fresh injustice perpetrated by elected officials whose primary purpose should be to improve the lives of the people they serve.
A Tennessee bill restricts drag performances characterizing them as necessarily perverse theater which should be kept behind closed doors and away from children. That state doubled down on bigotry by also passing a bill which restricts gender-affirming care for transgender youth, despite the preponderance of medical opinions supporting such care. Tennessee is the 8th state in the nation to enact such a law.
Alabama is still the only state that makes providing gender-affirming care a felony.
