Texas has become the latest state and the most populous to ban gender-affirming care for transgender minors.

Texas has a population of about 30 million and is estimated to have about 30,000 trans residents between the ages of 13 and 14, according to the Williams Institute, a think tank on LGBTQ+ issues at the University of California, Los Angeles, School of Law. It is the second most populous state in the nation; California, which has declared itself a legal refuge for trans people seeking care, is first. Nine other states and the District of Columbia have “shield laws” like California’s, MAP notes.
