Montana passes bill against trans athletes

Montana has become the latest US state to officially pass a law to prohibit trans athletes from participating in school sports after governor Greg Gianforte signed the bill on May 7. LGBTQ+ activists have criticised state lawmakers, with Alex Rate, legal director of ACLU Montana, saying: “If you look at the legislature’s justification for advancing the transgender sports ban, they could cite not one instance where transgender participation in athletics has been a problem or caused conflict.”Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, Tennessee and West Virginia have already passed bills to prevent trans inclusion in sports, with several other states currently considering similar legislation.
