Trans Rights Under Attack in Indiana
TAKE ACTION NOW
Trans and non-binary people continue to fight for their right to exist in public spaces. Anti-equality lawmakers have yet again introduced language into legislation that targets trans and non-binary Hoosiers. The Indiana legislature has added language to SB 182 to make the process to obtain an ID even more difficult for trans and non-binary people.
The Indiana BMV took our state in the right direction when it added a non-binary gender option to drivers’ licenses and identification cards. And now, lawmakers are working to interfere with the new policy. The proposed measure would remove the decade old BMV policy that allows people to obtain an ID that correctly reflects their gender identity with a physician’s statement.
Additionally, trans Hoosiers who were born in other states may be entirely unable to update their ID due to varying state laws. In every state and every community — trans and non-binary people belong. We will fight to ensure our laws reflect that. We urge Indiana lawmakers to stop their spiteful interference with BMV policy.
Trans and non-binary people are under attack, and we can't back down. We must fight back.
