THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — Both California and Nevada state legislatures are considering pro transgender bills — in the former, a trans student rights bill, and in the latter, trans protection legislation.
California Assemblyman Tom Ammiano introduced a bill that allows trans students a right to use the restroom or locker room that corresponds with their gender identity. It also extends to sports — allowing trans students to play on teams corresponding with their gender identity.
The Transgender Law Center’s Masen Davis noted that this bill would make restroom or locker room use state law, as opposed to a policy — a method used by other states.
In Nevada, state Sen. Pat Spearman’s bill adds gender identity to the list of hate crimes in that state — Spearman hopes the bill’s severe penalties for hate crimes classification reduces violence against trans people.
