Sports Bans

Across the country, hundreds of anti-trans bills are in process in state legislatures. “Sports bans” criminalize schools and programs that allow trans and nonbinary students (kindergarten through college) to participate in sports in alignment with their gender identity. All kids, inclusive of trans kids, deserve the same chance to be part of a team, learn from one another, and respect the game. Banning kids from playing sports is mean-spirited and against what sports participation is about.

ACTION REQUEST

TALKING POINTS:

  • All kids, inclusive of trans kids, deserve the same chance to be part of a team, learn from one another, and respect the game.
  • Raising alarms about unfair advantages or locker room antics are all about fear mongering and have nothing to do with kids. Let them play.
  • Like any other athlete taking prescription medication, a transgender athlete is under the care of a doctor. Lawmakers need to leave the private health care decisions to families and their physicians.

Our Love is Louder!

The Texas Attorney General took an outrageous action and demanded that PFLAG National turn over information about our support of families in Texas seeking gender-affirming medical care for their transgender youth. Help make sure families who need PFLAG’s vital resources can get them!
