Canada issued a new travel warning to its LGBTQIA citizens planning to visit the US with the Global Affairs Canada releasing a warning that states that some locations there may now have laws that could affect their travels.

“Some states have enacted laws and policies that may affect 2SLGBTQI+ persons. Check relevant state and local laws,” reads its US travel advice page.

The term 2SLGBTQI+ is used in Canada for people who consider themselves two-spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning or intersex.

Moves to restrict LGBTQIA human rights have been increasing in the US – e.g. in March, a law was signed in Tennessee to ban drag performances in front of children and restrict medical treatment for transgender youth; and in May, a law was signed in Florida to ban children from undergoing transgender medical treatments or going to drag shows, as well as restricting pronoun use in classrooms.

A warning like this is usually reserved for openly anti-LGBTQIA countries, including Uganda and Russia.
