Numerous anti-trans legislations have recently been passed in several states. These purposed bills and laws include limits on health care access, removing LGBTQ+ materials from schools and banning trans athletes from sports. A nationwide survey conducted by the Trevor Project found that 86% of transgender and nonbinary youth said that anti-trans bills negatively impacted their mental health.
This panel discussion will explore the health and wellness impacts of these legislations on the trans and gender non-conforming community, as well as explore what we as a University can do to mitigate these negative impacts and provide critical supports for LGBTQ+ individuals.
A Queer Clothing Exchange and reception will follow the panel in the Light Works Gallery.
