How To Fight The Uptick In Anti-LGBTQ+ Bills
Trans people have faced the worst of it, with conservatives and anti-trans people using sports (amongst other trivial things) as a cover to erode LGBTQ+ rights and convince their base it's the right thing to do.NBC News reported that the number of anti-LGBTQ+ bills has skyrocketed from "41 in 2018 to 238 in less than three months of this year" and with anti-transgender legislation representing the bulk of those new bills.With the upcoming 2022 midterm elections, LGBTQ+ rights and the candidates who support them will be crucial, but here are some things you can do at home to start organizing and bring the fight for equality to your neighborhood before then.While we mostly talk about politics at the highest levels, local city and state politics will often have a more immediate effect on you, although it is less high profile, which is something you can use to your advantage. Smaller politicians and elected officials are very much at the whim of the small public electorate who voted them in, so a small margin of votes can cost a decades-plus incumbent their seat. Plus, this smaller margin means that electing LGBTQ+ people or allies into office is that much easier. Protests, social media campaigns, and demonstrations and boycotts can not only grab the attention of your elected officials, but of the media and the community, which can build momentum or fire up more local action.
