WE ARE TRANS PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN TENNESSEE AND THIS IS A HUGE ISSUE so please overcome your usual apathy about online petitions, literally any help we could get with this will change lives in huge ways.
When trans people are forced to out themselves because they still have their assigned sex on their documentation, this puts us at a huge disadvantage and danger doing literally everything you’d have to produce an ID for. Jobs, medical care, education, government benefits like food stamps or housing, emergency care, homeless shelters, the list goes on and on. Even buying cigarettes at the corner store becomes a potential for violence.
