OKLAHOMA – Today, the Oklahoma state legislature sent House Bill 1775 — a bill that prohibits diversity training regarding gender identity, sexual orientation, race stereotyping and sex stereotyping for students – to Governor Kevin Stitt’s desk. HB 1775 is the first piece of anti-LGBTQ legislation that the state legislature has advanced.
The legislative fight to pass discriminatory anti-LGBTQ legislation has been fast and furious, led by national groups aiming to stymie LGBTQ progress made on the national level and in many states. There are so far more than 253 anti-LGBTQ bills under consideration in state legislatures across the country. Of those, at least 124 directly target transgender people.
