Just one of the many anti-transgender bills sweeping the nation will not move forward. Tennessee anti-transgender bill died after hearing from local transgender children changed the hearts and minds of even the most conservative officials. The measure was unanimously ‘sent to summer study’ where it won’t move forward.
The ACLU said in a statement:
Once again we saw today how meeting with trans young people changed hearts and minds. Our common humanity can unite us and we can push back against these costly and discriminatory impulses if we center those most affected. It is an exciting day in Tennessee and I am thankful for the brave young people who are making the world a better place for us all.
