Today, The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) — the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ+) civil rights organization — condemned Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt for signing S.B. 1100, a bill that eliminates inclusive gender markers from official documents. Already this year, Governor Stitt has signed legislation, S.B. 2 that prohibits transgender students from playing school sports consistent with their gender identity. It excludes all transgender girls from participating in school athletics, increasing their isolation and denying them the social, physical and emotional benefits of sports. It does so despite the fact that banning transgender girls from participating in school sports programs solves nothing and in fact causes great harm. These bills signed by Governor Stitt, and those additional anti-equality bills being pushed in the House and Senate, go directly against the views of a majority of Oklahomans as polling from PRRI shows that 75% of Oklahomans support expanding LGBTQ+ rights including protections from discrimination.
