The Tennessee governor has signed the cruelest anti-trans law in the nation.

By Bil Browning Tuesday, May 18, 2021

Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee (R) has signed one of the cruelest anti-trans laws in the nation, which will require businesses and public buildings to warn cisgender customers that they serve transgender people like any other customer.

It is the second bill restricting transgender public accommodations signed into law recently by the governor and the fourth specifically targeting transgender people.

The new Tennessee law requires any “building or facility open to the general public” that allows transgender people access to the bathroom to post a sign that reads: “This facility has a policy of allowing the use of restrooms by either biological sex, regardless of the designation on the restroom.”

“Gov. Lee’s decision to sign H.B. 1182 will cause real harm to transgender Tennesseans,” Human Rights Campaign President Alphonso David said in an emailed statement. “Denying transgender people the ability to access a bathroom consistent with their gender identity is degrading and dehumanizing — and can have real health and safety consequences. Gov. Lee and Tennessee lawmakers are determined to discriminate against the transgender community and roll back the clock on equality instead of focusing on real problems facing Tennesseans.”
