Anti-Trans Discrimination Bills (AUDIO)

By Charlotte Robinson, April 11, 2022

This week I talked with human rights activist Amberlyn Boiter about the South Carolina House passing H.4608 a bill that seeks to restrict transgender students in middle school, high school & college from participating in school athletics. The bill is now awaiting discussion on the South Carolina Senate floor. This year marks the first time in years that explicitly anti-LGBTQ legislation has passed a full chamber in South Carolina. This is not the only state to consider or pass harmful legislation against our LGBTQ community. So far in 2022 legislative session dozens of states are considering similar legislation related to LGBTQ discrimination including Florida that passed House Bill 1557 known as the “Don’t Say Gay” law & Alabama’s governor has signed a bill criminalizing transgender health care for minors. The Alabama bill could put doctors in prison for up to 10 years for prescribing puberty blockers or hormonal treatment to trans kids under 19. It is crucial that our LGBTQ community & straight allies speak out against these horrific hateful bills & call out the hypocrisy of anti-transgender legislators. Already in Florida legal action has been filed challenging the “Don’t Say Gay” law. In his State Of The Union President Biden stated, “The onslaught of state laws targeting transgender Americans & their families is simply wrong.” More affirmative action is needed & The Equality Act must be passed. I talked to Amberlyn about what action needs to happen to make this country safe for our transgender community & her spin on our LGBTQ issues. LISTEN
