In late June, the part of a bill that bans gender-affirming care for children will go into effect in Kentucky.
Last Wednesday, the NKY Pride center held a town hall in Covington in opposition of the recently passed Senate Bill 150.
Bonnie Meyer co-chairs and helped open NKY Pride on Pike Street in 2021 after serving as the founding director of the Northern Kentucky University’s office of LGBTQ programs and services.
She said it’s important for the community in NKY to have the conversation about the bill because northern Kentucky supports those in the LGBTQ+ community, and the bill doesn’t represent those in the region.
The town hall came amidst a busy week around politics and the lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union Kentucky over the bill.
