I’m a little late on the Trans Day of Visibility, since it was March 31, and it’s now a week later. But I just recently got some very awesome information to show.
I am a proud scion of the state of New Jersey, and on the Transgender Day of Visibility, the governor of the state, the inestimable Phillip Murphy, declared it in an executive order as a sanctuary state. This means that if you prescribe trans health care, then move to NJ, or you’ve moved to NJ from a transgender-hostile state that bans trans health care, they won’t lift a finger to help you get extradited.
In addition, about the same time, the state opened a site at https://transgender.nj.gov/ to give a central point for transgender people to get information on the laws, processes, and resources in New Jersey they can access.
This is incredibly good news, and there’s the possibility of crossing the river again. So we will see…
And now, a bit of music that may be a little relevant.
