U.S. Lawmakers Reintroduce Trans Bill of Rights Ahead of Transgender Day of Visibility

HeadlineMar 31, 2023

Today marks International Transgender Day of Visibility, a celebration of trans and nonbinary people. Actions and protests are planned across the U.S. and worldwide, including here in New York, as communities fight intensifying discrimination, violence and anti-trans laws. On Capitol Hill, progressive lawmakers have reintroduced the Transgender Bill of Rights. The measure, revived by Congressmember Pramila Jayapal and Senator Ed Markey, would “provide protections for transgender and nonbinary people, ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to thrive, regardless of their gender identity or expression.” In 2023 alone, there have been at least 450 anti-LGBTQ bills proposed in state legislatures and Congress.
