The ACLU-New Hampshire estimates that less than half of students in New Hampshire are covered by school policies designed to protect transgender and gender non-conforming students.

Large crowds showed up at the State House this week to push back on a number of Republican-sponsored bills that advocates say would curtail the rights of LGBTQ youth.

The proposals include bills that would restrict access to gender-affirming care and updated versions of a so-called parental rights bill that failed to pass last year.
