Please join us for Transpositive on KBOO Community Radio on Tuesday, March 21st as we discuss the current wave of hate legislation being introduced across the country targeting trans kids. Over 400 individual pieces of legislation have been introduced in over 36 states including 7 in Oregon. The vast majority are aimed at trans kids, denying trans kids the right to use the bathroom, to get counseling and therapy and access to basic medical services. Doctors who provide services to trans kids have been threatened with felonies and lifetime imprisonment. In the state of Arkansas, a bill is heading to the governor's desk which would make it a crime for transgender people to use the bathroom. In Tennessee legislation has been passed that has transgender people wondering if they will be arrested for going out in public. We will discuss where this most recent spate of hate legislation started, in South Dakota in 2019, and the two right wing anti-trans hate groups pushing this legislation, the Alliance Defending Freedom and the American College of Pediatricians as well as the role the conservative American Legislative Exchange Council has played in this attack on Trans rights.
