The Anti-Trans Bills Sweeping Across the US

In the last four months, roughly 500 anti-LGBTQ bills have been introduced across the United States. The bills range from barring trans kids from playing sports in their gender category to banning LGBTQ books and drag in public spaces. One of the latest waves of attacks is focused on banning gender-affirming healthcare for children and teens. On today’s episode of VICE News Reports, VICE News’ Senior Reporter Anya Zoledziowski explains who is behind this legislation and what these bills mean for trans people and their families. Warning: This episode includes references to suicidal ideation.
