As a follow up to the recent news regarding Florida State Bill 1580, ACA has developed and compiled additional resources to support counselors who may be facing practice-related challenges to serving clients who are part of the LGBTQ+ community. These include:

We continue to monitor the more than 1,000 pieces of LGBTQ+ related legislation introduced or pending in 2023 state legislative sessions. A synopsis of those bills is below:

  • Positive - 200+ bills
  • Negative - 520+ bills (in 41 states)
  • Watching - 200+ bills
  • 220+ are specifically anti-transgender, including:
    • 125+ gender-affirming care bans
    • 45+ sports bans
    • 30+ “bathroom” bills
  • 100+ curriculum censorship bills
  • 35+ religious refusals
  • 45+ anti-drag performance bills
  • Harmful anti-LGBTQ+ bills passed = 48
  • Harmful anti-LGBTQ+ bills at or approaching the governor’s desk = 22
