Oklahoma City, Oklahoma – A group of protesters gathered at the Oklahoma State Capitol this morning ahead of Governor Stitt’s State of the State address. The demonstration was in opposition to several bills filed ahead of the legislative session that deal with transgender education and care. The protesters could be heard loudly chanting “Trans Lives Matter” throughout the Capitol building.
The demonstration is the latest in a series of events highlighting the ongoing struggle for transgender rights in Oklahoma and across the United States. The protesters are calling for the protection of transgender individuals and an end to legislation that they see as harmful to their community.
