Florida Enacts Ban on Transgender Youth in School Sports

HeadlineJun 02, 2021

Florida has become the largest state to impose a ban on transgender women and girls in school sports. Republican Governor Ron DeSantis signed the bill Tuesday, the first day of Pride Month. At least six other states, all with Republican governors, have passed similar laws. The ACLU’s Chase Strangio notes more anti-trans bills have become law in 2021 than in the previous 10 years combined. Meanwhile, President Biden issued a proclamation recognizing June as Pride Month and vowed to fight for LGBTQ rights.
