“Twenty-eight states are considering anti-trans bills, according to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). The bills put forth this year predominantly fall into two categories: removing trans girls’ ability to participate in girls’ sports, and restricting young trans peoples’ access to gender-affirming health care. While many of them may not become law, bills in three states — Tennessee, Mississippi and Arkansas — have already been passed and signed by state governors this month.” https://ift.tt/2QHfxIZ

“Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson on Monday vetoed legislation that would have made his state the first to ban gender confirming treatments or surgery for transgender youth.” This is a great win, but this bill came too close to reality and there are still similar bills in other states. We have to keep the pressure on! https://ift.tt/3mtbVGr #LGBTQ #LGBTQRights #TransRights #Arkansas #TransBills #TransYouthBills #HateBills

Today is the International Trans Day of Visibility. It can feel like trans people are pretty visible today, but there is a long way to go, and too much of our history remains unknown. Do you know the name of the first openly transgender person to be nominated for any category of Oscar? Angela Morley already had an established career as a musical director for TV and Film before she transitioned in 1972. After she came out, she was nominated for an Oscar in 1974 for her work on score of The Little Prince. She went on to work on the orchestration of Jesus Christ Superstar. She composed the majority of the music for the animated Watership Down. And she collaborated with John Williams in the 70s and 80s including work on Star Wars, Superman, The Empire Strikes Back, E.T., Hook, Home Alone, Home Alone 2, and Schindler’s List, but remained uncredited for her work. She was nominated six times for Emmy Awards for composing and won three times for music direction. Too many people think that trans people are a new phenomenon. We’ve always been here.

Good morning! It’s #TransDayOfVisibility! “Biden is the first sitting U.S. president to issue a proclamation in observance of the day. It comes as a record number of state legislatures — predominately led by Republicans — introduce bills to regulate how trans youth play sports and receive gender-affirming healthcare.” https://ift.tt/3u7VlhY #TDoV #EqualityAct #TransRightsAreHumanRights #TransPride #LGBTQPride
