Video from Equality Texas spells out how the political war on transgender children is harming their families

Power hungry politicians treat trans kids like pawns in a chess match.

On the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, and Transphobia, Equality Texas announces the launch of a short animated video created by Free Lion Productions that highlights the struggle of Texas trans kids and their families. 

 For the past two years trans kids have been the target of political attacks, and lawmakers have been abusing their authority to bully health care providers from caring for their trans patients. Children’s health care decisions should be a collaboration between parents, their doctors, and the patients themselves. This video illustrates the pain that parents and trans kids feel when politicians insert themselves into the doctor’s office.

They give a message that the GOP is targeting trans people instead of trying to right a wrong. And folks don't respond well when they are given the impression that a group of people is being picked on.
