Iowa students to leave class Wednesday in statewide protest over LGBTQ bills

02/28/2023 | Des Moines Register

Students at 14 Iowa public school districts and one university are planning to walk out of class Wednesday to protest bills introduced in the Iowa Legislature that they say discriminate against the rights of LGBTQ people. Several controversial bills centered on LGBTQ youth have been introduced this legislative session. Student organizers are particularly concerned about bills that would require educators to notify parents and guardians if a student is transgender, as well as a bill prohibiting the teaching of gender identity and sexual orientation to students through sixth-grade. Lawmakers are also considering legislation that would restrict gender-affirming care for minors this session.
