Montana’s GOP Joins Anti-Trans Culture Wars



Montana’s GOP Joins Anti-Trans Culture Wars

Montana’s governor, Greg Gianforte signed a bill banning gender-affirming treatment for minors this week just days after Republicans in the state legislature censured Representative Zooey Zephyr, the first and only openly transgender state lawmaker for speaking out against the bill. Gianforte signed the bill even though his own son, who is non-binary, pleaded with his father to veto it.

Meanwhile Ms. Zephyr has filed a lawsuit against her censure. She was silenced from speaking against the bill after she accused her fellow lawmakers of having blood on their hands in passing anti-transgender bills.
