Queer and transgender college students struggle to cope with anti-LGBTQ+ legislation, rhetoric and violence. This year alone, state lawmakers have filed at least 340 anti-LGBTQ+ bills, according to the Human Rights Campaign, and at least 25 have passed. These include policies that would restrict queer and transgender people from accessing healthcare, limit educators from teaching about LGBTQ+ identities in schools and prevent athletes from playing sports on the team that corresponds with their gender identity.
