Locals push back against anti-trans legislation

By Mary Jane Epling, The Daily Independent

Local school boards have only a short time to decide if and what parts of Senate Bill 150 they’ll implement in the upcoming school year regarding how issues of sexuality and gender are handled in their schools.

According to several speakers at a Town Hall-type meeting on Wednesday, the anti-trans bill will implement policies that allow the misgendering of students, a ban on gender-affirming care and the “de-transition” of those already receiving treatment, the right for educators or administrators to “out” students to parents, outlaw conversations regarding gender and sexuality and endanger the lives of transgender children.

The bill, which passed through a Republican-majority legislature in March, is complex and muddy with legal jargon and contradictory lines, and it’s facing scrutiny in Boyd County.
