In a major blow to LGBTQ+ rights, Montana has banned trans citizens from changing their birth certificates. Over the last year and a half, the state’s Republican Governor Greg Gianforte has targeted the trans community with an array of harmful bills.

In May 2021, he signed the ‘Save Women’s Sports Act’ into law – which bans transgender girls and women from participating in sports.

That same year, Gianforte introduced Senate Bill 280, which set up new hurdles for trans individuals looking to change their birth certificates.

Under the legislation, citizens are required to present a court order proving that they underwent gender-affirming surgery. Now in 2022, the Gianforte administration is making it even harder for trans people to legally change their gender identity.
