At this 2017 protest in Washington, D.C., people decried the Trump administration's revocation of federal guidance that directed schools to allow trans students to use restrooms aligning with their gender identity, which President Biden reinstated on his first day in office. But policy attacks on trans youth have continued since then at the state level, with Republican leaders in Texas now seeking to criminalize families that provide trans children with gender confirming medical care.
