In the 2021 session, Iowa Safe Schools is proposing a comprehensive bill to catch up on years of stagnation on LGBTQ rights in Iowa. This bill will include the key issues that are facing the LGBTQ community here in the state; ending conversion therapy, banning the trans/gay panic, including gender identity in Iowa’s Hate Crimes Law, LGBTQ inclusive sex education as well as social studies curriculum, protecting intersex rights, supporting victim services, comprehensive school suicide prevention policy, and improving our anti-bullying law. The legislation will be titled “The Iowa Equality Act”, implementing bipartisan, commonsense solutions for LGBTQ Iowans. We look forward to leading the way on protecting Iowa’s LGBTQ community in 2021!
