All young people have the right to lead healthy lives. All young people have the right to health care to survive and thrive. Yet around the country, politicians are villainizing transgender people, banning and criminalizing important health care, and attempting to drive transgender people out of public life, with over 300 anti-transgender and anti-LGBTQ bills introduced in state legislatures. We should be celebrating transgender young people, providing the support they need, and affirming them for who they are, not erasing, endangering, and vilifying these youth.

Advocates for Youth is committed to transgender young people’s health, rights, and safety.
