Hochul signs bill protecting access to gender-affirming care
WNYT reports that on June 25 Governor Kathy Hochul signed a bill protecting access to gender-affirming care in New York. The state is now not allowed to cooperate with hostile states’ rules against gender-affirming care providers, patients, family members, and those who help people access care. New York Civil Liberties Union Executive Director Donna Lieberman said, "As we mark Pride Month, New York has taken an important step to protect the rights and well-being of the trans community – particularly young people and their families. By signing the Hoylman-Sigal/Bronson bill, the Governor is helping to make our state a beacon for access to gender-affirming care.” Read more about this story at WNYT.
