Alaska could pass anti-trans bathroom bill


The next fight for transgender rights will take place in Alaska as plans to pass anti-trans bathroom legislation are underway. The state’s capital city of Anchorage is debating an anti-transgender toilet ballot initiative in their next municipal election, where voters will express their view on the issue by means of plebiscite. The bill will seek to limit both locker and bathroom use for transgender people forcing them to use bathroom facilities for the gender stated in their birth certificates. If the vote passes, private business owners will also have the ability to force trans customers out of locker rooms and toilets. In the 2015 transgender survey, half of the transgender Alaskans living in the stomping ground of Sarah Palin said that they “avoided using a public restroom in the past year because they were afraid of confrontations or other problems they might experience.”
