In response, PROMO has now launched a new story collection initiative on its website in order to highlight transgender Missourians impacted by anti-transgender laws, including the ban on health care and a ban on transgender student participation in sports. Missouri’s transgender sports ban is one of the most severe in the country affecting both transgender boys and girls and public, private, and charter schools, as well as schools who participate in competitions against another team who has a transgender athlete competing. Any school who violates the law risks losing 100% of their state public funding.
