Unfortunately, transgender rights are in danger in Missouri too as a bill to prevent transgender youth from playing sports and getting gender reassignment treatments has been introduced in the House of Representatives.
In the latest round of state-level battles over transgender rights, a Louisiana Republican-led effort to override Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards’ veto of a sports ban for trans people failed in the House.

Two month ago, I wrote about how the state of Tennessee was passing a bill that would ban transgender girls from playing sports in a team that matches their gender identities. It was a discouraging development, and unfortunately, the situation for transgender rights is no better in Arizona. The Senate Judiciary Committee has just approved a sports participation law, meaning it is one step closer to becoming real.
