Mix of Setbacks, Gains Unsettles Many Transgender Americans

09/23/2018 | ABC News

For transgender Americans, 2018 has been marked by series of advancements and setbacks. The steps forward have included numerous legislative actions and court rulings buttressing civil rights and a victory by a transgender candidate in Vermont’s Democratic gubernatorial primary. The steps back have included the Trump administration rolling back protections, and anti-transgender vitriol that caused an Oklahoma town’s schools to be closed for two days in August after adults made threatening comments on Facebook about a 12-year-old transgender student’s use of a girls’ bathroom. And the coming weeks may be even more unsettling, ahead of the first-ever statewide vote on whether anti-discrimination protections should extend to transgender people.
