[Comment] Protect trans people: gender equality and equity in action

#ProtectTransPeople has surfaced on social media as transgender (trans) civil rights have come into US national discussion.1 Trans people continue to experience hostility and overt discrimination, as exemplified by US President Donald Trump’s proposed ban on trans people serving in the US military2 and his administration’s support of reversal of workplace protections and “bathroom” bills that oppose gender-neutral bathrooms.3 Gender equality and equity for trans populations is at stake as 16 US states to date have introduced “bathroom bills” restricting access to sex-segregated facilities on the basis of sex-assigned at birth, with 14 states targeting public schools.
