“As the mother of twins, when I send my kids to school, I expect them to be safe and shielded from ridicule,” said GLAAD President & CEO Sarah Kate Ellis. “This discriminatory bill puts our children in harm’s way, fueling stigma, bullying, and a climate of hate. Gov. Daugaard must fulfill his duty to protect all South Dakotans, especially its young people, by vetoing this mean-spirited and destructive bill.”
GLAAD urges the media to share the perspectives of transgender South Dakotans on HB 1008, and to hold South Dakota legislators accountable for their biased and inaccurate statements about transgender people.
