Today (Thursday, March 31), on International Transgender Day of Visibility, the U.S. Justice Department issued a letter to all state attorneys general to remind them of federal constitutional and statutory provisions protecting transgender youth from discrimination, including when those youth seek gender-affirming care.

The “reminder” comes just a little more than a month after Texas AG Ken Paxton issued his non-binding opinion saying that gender-affirming health care for transgender children is child abuse, and Gov.

Greg Abbott used that opinion as the basis for a directive ordering the state’s Department of Family and Protective Services to launch child abuse investigations into parents and medical professionals providing gender-affirming health care to transgender children under 18.
