Colorado lawmakers consider bills on transgender rights – The Denver Post:

“Rights for transgender people are at the heart of two bills up for debate at the state Capitol, both for the second time after failed attempts last year.

One would allow transgender people to change the gender marker on their birth certificate with a note from a medical or mental-health professional, regardless of whether they had gender reassignment surgery.

The second bill would prohibit so-called ‘conversion’ therapy for children, meaning parents could not send their kids to therapists for the purpose of making them straight or gender-conforming.”
