Every year, state lawmakers take aim at the rights and well-being of trans kids while ignoring real issues facing our state.
Year after year, it’s the same story: Issues that matter most to South Dakotans get ignored as some lawmakers continue to attack the LGBTQ+ and Two Spirit community.

And we’re not the only ones.
Organizations like the Transformation Project Advocacy Network and Equality South Dakota as well as people across the state are speaking out against discriminatory anti-trans bills, too. Hear from some of these people below.
