Anti-trans initiative fails to make California ballot

By John Mack Freeman

An anti-trans initiative has failed to gather the required signatures to make the ballot in California. Via Towleroad:

Had it been approved by California voters, the “Personal Privacy Protection Act” would have required trans people to use public restrooms according to their biological sex unless a doctor confirmed they had undergone gender reassignment surgery.

In response to Privacy for All’s announcement, the coalition of LGBT groups opposing the initiativeunveiled a campaign to educate voters about trans issues in an effort to stave off similar efforts in the future

The same group also failed to put an almost identical measure on the ballot two years ago. A lawsuit related to that case is still working its way through the courts.
