Indiana Governor Signs New Legislation Aimed at LGBTQ Students

On May 4, Republican Governor Eric Holcomb signed a bill requiring schools to notify a parent if a student requests a pronoun or name change at school. Associated Press reports that the approval of the bill comes at the end of a legislative session targeting LGBTQ+ rights, especially when it comes to students. Supporters of the bill say it empowers parents and keeps them informed about their children's school life.
