House Bill 1220 – Prohibiting Gender Affirming Care

Authored by Rep. Michelle Davis, HB-1220 Prohibits gender affirming care for young people under the age of 18. No attempt at differentiation between care for precocious puberty from transgender healthcare seems to be written into this bill. It’s possible children with precocious puberty could get swept up in this care denial. Considering kids with PP are the bulk of patients receiving puberty blockers, it will be interesting how they attempt to force clinical disclosure of the reason why blockers are prescribed.

17-year-old Indianapolis Youth Killed Because She Was Trans

From the Indianapolis Star:

Gregory Johnson and his friend Brandie Coleman were killed and left in an SUV set on fire in the 6700 block of Fall Creek Parkway, North Drive. Johnson, they say, was a sweet and funny young man who liked to dress as a woman, fooling his dates. They suspect one of them became enraged upon learning the truth and killed Johnson and his female friend.

They were murdered by Paul Moore and Curtis Ward, and they enlisted Paul’s half-brother, Clarence McGee to help cover up their deaths.

What’s scary is that this article in the Indianapolis Star seems to blame Nireah, not the killers, for her death. Just because you’re upset that someone fooled you does not give you the right to kill them and their friends.
