In a major win for trans rights, a Utah judge has reversed the state’s harmful trans sports ban. Back in March, lawmakers introduced the transphobic House Bill 11 during a legislative session.

Under the bill, transgender girls would be banned from competing in school sports that align with their gender identity. Officials debated the legislation for an hour before the Senate ultimately passed it with a 16-13 vote.

It then headed to House lawmakers, who immediately passed the proposal with a vote of 46-29. Even though House Bill 11 was vetoed by the state’s governor Spencer Cox, conservative lawmakers overturned it with a 56-18 vote and a 21-8 vote in the state’s House and Senate, respectively.
