The wave of anti-LGBT bills that have been filed by state legislators across the country continues to grow. More than 100 bills have been filed this year in 29 state legislatures.
Last month, HRC reported that lawmakers have introduced more than 85 anti-LGBT bills in 28 state legislatures.
As of April 6th, anti-LGBT legislation proposed in Colorado, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, Montana, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia and Wyoming had been defeated or failed to meet key legislative deadlines, but more than 60 bills are still active in other states.
HRC is leading efforts around the country to counter these bills, deploying staff to key states and partnering with state-based LGBT equality organizations and other allies.
