Our co-signed letter to the Biden administration: rcusa.org/resources/300-…
.@POTUS has made it clear that human rights are at the center of U.S. policy. If this is true, the U.S. must use every resource available to expand opportunities for LGBTQ+ Afghans to seek refuge in the U.S.
We are deeply concerned for LGBTQ+ Afghans who will be subject to extreme persecution, including death for many, because of who they are. The U.S. must take swift action to protect these refugees.
BREAKING: Lambda Legal has joined Refugee Council and 345 other partner organizations in calling on the Biden administration to protect LGBTQ+ Afghan refugees from the Taliban.
The Biden administration is sending a strong & meaningful message to transgender students across the country — and especially in places where they have come under attack by politicians. It’s so important for trans kids to know that they are not alone. twitter.com/HHS_ASH/status…

Giving trans and non-binary people the ability to change their legal documents to reflect their names and identity is not only the right thing to do, but it also reduces risk of harassment and abuse. This NH policy is a step in the right direction. them.us/story/new-hamp…
Trans youth in Texas have spent their lives fighting back against discriminatory anti-trans measures. Enough is enough. Trans kids deserve to grow up without having to worry about their rights taken away. them.us/story/trans-te…

From our plaintiff’s victory in Nabozny v. Podlesny holding school officials liable for anti-LGBTQ+ bullying, to the preliminary injunction in WV which halted the state’s ban on trans youth in sports, we have fought and will continue to fight for the rights of LGBTQ+ students.
As trans students return to school this fall, it is encouraging to see @usedgov’s message of support. For too long LGBTQ+ students have been subjected to discrimination and harassment in school just for being who they are. youtube.com/watch?v=lGHtoB…

Hi, I’m nonbinary! Haters are triggered because I undermine their belief that one gender is better than “the other.” Haters aren’t fighting for “science” or “biology;” they don’t seem to know the biology. “Biology” is their code for the SYSTEM💛👯‍♀️

TODAY IN HISTORY: The Ryan White CARE Act became law 31 years ago. The law is named after teenager Ryan White who, because of his HIV diagnosis, had to go to court to be able to attend school. Thanks to this law, access to treatment has been made easier for all.
