Sports transgender bill veto in Kentucky rare win in sea of LGBTQ hate

In the entire Kentucky school system, according to the Fairness Campaign, an LGBTQ advocacy group, there is one openly transgender athlete playing on a school sports team.

One. Out of hundreds of thousands of students.

“In Kentucky’s entire school system, there is only one openly transgender girl we know about who is playing on a school sports team,” Fairness Campaign executive director Chris Hartman said in a statement. “But rather than tackle any of the state’s real issues, legislators decided to use their time and power to bully this student and others like her.”
