More than 100 anti-LGBTQ+ bills have already been proposed this year [View all]

Over 100 anti-LGBTQ+ bills have already been filed in state legislatures in 2023.

NBC News reported that the bills are concentrated in 22 states, with Texas leading the charge, followed by Missouri, North Dakota, and Oklahoma.

Most of the bills target trans youth, but this year, some of them are also looking to restrict health care for trans adults.

In Oklahoma, for example, a new bill called the “Millstone Act of 2023” has been proposed to ban all forms of gender-affirming care for anyone under 26 years old. The bill targets healthcare providers and says anyone who violates the rule could face felony charges and have their medical license revoked.
