A women’s roller derby league in New York is suing their county over an ordinance that bans female sports teams with transgender athletes from using local facilities.

LIRR member Amanda “Curly Fry” Urena called the order “cruel” in a statement, emphasizing the “dangerous message” it sends.

“This cruel policy sends the dangerous message that trans people don’t belong in Nassau County,” Urena said. “We hope the court sees this policy for what it is — transphobic and unjust — and makes sure Nassau County is a safe space for trans, nonbinary, and gender-expansive people.”
