Anti-trans bill among nation’s toughest, becomes law in Kentucky

FRANKFORT, Ky. – Heavy fog blanketed Kentucky’s state Capitol Wednesday morning, at points so dense it rendered the Capitol building invisible. 

But the fuzzy outlines of people standing in throngs outside and gathering in clumps in the parking garage could not be erased. 

Hundreds of LGBTQ+ youths and their allies, young and old, protested in a last-ditch attempt to convince Kentucky’s Republican-dominated legislature to let one of the nation’s toughest anti-trans bills die.

Their efforts were to no avail.

Shortly after gaveling in Wednesday afternoon, the Kentucky Senate voted to override Gov. Andy Beshear’s veto of the bill, and little more than 30 minutes later, the House followed suit, making it law.
