Video: ‘Proud transgender woman’ who’s ‘mother’ of 2 ‘transgender and gender-expansive children’ pushes ‘trans refuge’ legislation

News & Politics

Amber complained of legislation being pushed that would interfere in gender-affirming medical care — particularly for children.

“My trans partner and I frequently discuss plans to flee the country if these targeted, hateful bills keep being introduced or passed,” Amber added to the committee.

According Democrat state Rep. Leigh Finke — author of House File 146 — the legislation would “turn Minnesota into a trans refuge state by protecting trans people, their families, and medical practitioners from legal repercussions for traveling to Minnesota to receive gender-affirming care.”

Finke added that “trans people of all ages depend on gender-affirming care, which encompasses a wide range of social and medical interventions to affirm someone’s internal gender identity, including puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, permanent hair removal, voice therapy, and surgical interventions.”

Amber also testified about not feeling “100 percent safe” alongside the “torrent of damaging, ill-informed, and outright malicious legislation being introduced across the country.”

“As someone who started transitioning well into her adulthood, I know better than most how essential and life-saving gender-affirming medical care is,” Amber said, adding that “I am so grateful that trans and gender-expansive kids have access to the knowledge and medical care to be their full selves and thrive. To not only deny them life-saving medical care but to charge and prosecute supportive parents and health care professionals is barbaric and morally repugnant.”
