Transgender hate comes in many forms. What happens when hate becomes codified in law? This year an unprecedented number of state legislation bills to ban pro-transgender health care and curriculum in schools have been proposed around the nation.  We join Chase Strangio in a conversation about these bills and how we can fight them to dismantle transgender hate.
