For the Right to a Trans* Childhood: Arkansas Passes Deadly Anti-Trans* Bill

Arkansas is one of many states that are trying to dangerously restrict that ability of trans* youth to access gender-affirming healthcare. This is just another step in a larger assault on trans* rights as part of the culture wars that Republicans hope will rally their base and bring them back to power.
