Chase Strangio on the GOP’s Push in Florida, Texas, Idaho to “Eradicate Trans Youth & Trans Lives”

1 min read

We speak with Chase Strangio of the ACLU about recent anti-LGBTQ legislation in Florida, Texas, and Idaho, and pending bills in other states. Florida’s "Don’t Say Gay" education bill aims to ban the mere discussion of sexuality and gender identity in schools. A bill in Idaho criminalizes gender-affirming healthcare for transgender children and teens. Meanwhile, welfare officials in Texas have begun to carry out Republican Governor Greg Abbott’s directive to launch child abuse investigations against parents who seek gender-affirming care for their transgender children. "What we’re seeing is a national, well-funded effort to attack and eradicate trans youth and trans lives specifically," says Strangio, who is also an attorney in the ACLU’s lawsuit against Abbott.
