February 22, 2019, 2:05 pm
Today, legislation targeting transgender youth passed the South Dakota House of Representatives. South Dakota lawmakers have introduced a trio of discriminatory bills—HB 1205/SB 49, HB 1108, and HB 1225—that target transgender kids’ access to medical care, accurate health education and their ability to participate in sports. HB 1108, which just passed the House of Representatives, would prohibit educators from including gender identity or gender expression in their curricula in kindergarten through seventh grade in South Dakota’s public schools.
