Banning Transgender Athletes in Girl’s Sports Proposed in Missouri Senate Bill

A Missouri State Senator has introduced a bill that would ban transgender athletes from participating in school sports on girl’s sports teams.

Senator Justin Brown’s bill would prohibit anyone not assigned female at birth from participating in school sports, athletic competitions, tournaments, and games intended for those under the age of 19.

The Missouri State Highschool activities association has had a policy in effect since 2012 that requires transgender athletes to apply to participate in sports.
