Deep in the heart of Texas, loving parents face traumatizing politically-motivated “child abuse” investigations into the treatment of their transgender children with gender-affirming healthcare. Activists, constitutional law experts and doctors dissect the issues, and some of the victims of the frightening official overreach that’s spreading to other Republican-controlled U.S. states tell their stories.

And in NewsWrap: the U.K. Privy Council upholds marriage equality bans in Bermuda and the Cayman Islands, Kosovo’s Parliament is uncivil on a partnership proposal, Guatemala’s Congress kills an illiberal anti-LGBTQ and anti-abortion bill, Russia’s detention of the WNBA’s Griner goes into overtime, “Don’t Say Gay” loses in a major U.S. opinion poll, Disney workers protest the Mouse’s bond with Republican rats, New York students do say “gay” in national solidarity, and more international LGBTQ news reported this week by Wendy Natividad and Wenzel Jones (produced by Brian DeShazor).
