More anti-LGBTQIA moves in the “land of the free”.

In Louisiana, right-wing Republican politicians passed a bill restricting what public bathrooms, changing rooms and sleeping quarters will be allowed to be used by transgender people. It now goes to the right-wing Republican governor’s desk for signature.

The bill similarly defines the terms “man,” “woman,” “girl,” “boy,” “male” and “female.” These definitions focus on what is assigned at birth, and does not include gender identity, which the bill does not define.

People said to experience, or is expected to experience, direct or indirect harm as a violation of the bill are allowed to sue. This includes those who is retaliated against for pointing out a violation.

Republican Gov. Jeff Landry has supported other anti-LGBTQIA measures in the past, including restricting the discussion of gender and sexuality in K-12 schools.
