This initiative is clearly a bathroom policing and transgender discrimination initiative that targets people who look different and don’t meet stereotypes of what someone considers to be male or female. It comes from the same place of transphobia and homophobia that renders transgender and gender non-conforming bodies invisible, unacceptable, and disposable in our society.
Currently, API Equality - Northern California is gearing up for a public education effort to challenge the messages that are being disseminated about trans and gender non-conforming people in our community. This work is part of our larger initiatives around trans justice and trans liberation, because trans folks, especially transgender women of color, are especially vulnerable to state and interpersonal violence in this country.
