Protections for transgender people will be stripped back in Madrid after a proposal was passed by the Spanish capital’s conservative People’s Party (PP). Under the reform, discriminating against workers based on their sexual orientation or gender identity is no longer a punishable offence. It is also no longer a punishable offence to beat a person without causing injury based on their sexual orientation or gender identity. The bill amended a regional trans rights law and an LGBTQ rights law, both of which were passed in 2016. The decision makes Madrid the first Spanish region to roll back such legislation. It has sparked outcry from the opposition in Madrid and LGBTQ activists.
