From Goodgoodgood.co (Mar 16, 2023):
“Transgender folks are under attack. Plain and simple: it is dangerous to live outside the gender binary in America right now. In the most recent tally, the ACLU has tracked over 460 anti-LGBTQ+ bills introduced in state legislatures across the country this year…
What we need now more than ever is a deeper understanding and empathy for trans folks. Nebraska Senator Megan Hunt, who was the state’s first openly LGBTQ+ state senator, and is a mother to a transgender son, has been a vocal advocate in the fight against her own state’s ban on gender affirming care for minors.
(She has worked tirelessly to filibuster for nine straight weeks alongside her colleagues in an attempt to kill the bill, and is the co-founder of the Don’t Legislate Hate PAC, a fund to help elect more representatives who fight for LGBTQ+ equality across the board.)”
