Massachusetts will vote on whether to keep the law that allows transgender individuals to use the bathrooms and locker rooms that match their gender identity, and protects against discrimination.
The question will be on the Nov. 6 ballot, and is the first ever statewide referendum on transgender rights.
Nicole Talbot, 17, is the poster child for the campaign against repealing the law, which was passed in 2016. She transitioned in seventh grade, according to Associated Press.
“It allows me to live as who I am and have every right that every other person in the state has,” said Talbot.
But Republicans are saying that men are using the law to prey on girls by claiming to be transgender women, according to AP.
The AP requested records of complaints relating to the law, and found no alleged predation in bathrooms or locker rooms.
