Action Alert | anti-LGBT bill HB 2294 on the move
Take action today to stop unnecessary and divisive legislation in the House Government & Elections committee
Wednesday morning at 9 AM, the House Government & Elections committee will meet to hear Representative Fillmore’s HB 2294, a regressive bill that limits the ability of the vital records department or any other “agency, board, commission or department of this state” to issue documents with a gender marker other than M or F.
Here’s the thing: these are already the only two options in Arizona, and Fillmore’s bill won’t change that. HB 2294 isn’t about adding or taking away alternatives, like the X gender marker available on U.S. passports and in 21 states. All this bill actually is, is Fillmore sending a signal that he’s seen what California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico have done to improve the lives of non-binary and intersex people, and he doesn’t want that for Arizona.
