Co. Supreme Court greenlights signature collection for ballot initiative opponents believe would target LGBTQ+ students

DENVER — The Colorado Supreme Court is allowing a local group to collect signatures for a ballot initiative that opponents believe would target LGBTQ+ students.

The measure would require a public school representative to notify a student's parents if they are experiencing gender incongruence. Gender incongruence is when a person identifies as something other than the gender that was assigned at birth.

Opponents believe the measure could potentially "out" transgender students to their parents.

"Do people not have anything to do than to interfere in the lives of someone that's different from them?" Mardi Moore, executive director of Out Boulder County, said. "This is specifically an anti-LGBTQ initiative. The folks behind it have been clear."
