Pride Month represents an opportunity for the LGBTQIA+ community to celebrated and reflect on the history and achievements of their communities. It is also a time during which past, current and proposed policies that impact LGBTQIA+ communities receive greater attention.
So far in 2023, the partisan divide over gender identity, especially within education and healthcare settings, has generated a significant increase in legislation impacting transgender and nonbinary communities.
The research team at Plural is committed to monitoring legislative trends throughout the country. As we analyzed the 2023 legislative sessions, we were particularly surprised by the volume of bills targeting transgender and nonbinary rights. We leveraged Plural’s legislative data to better understand this trend. The data presented in this report is up-to-date as of Monday, June 26, 2023.
