The Governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis, has made Florida a place that does not welcome trans people. The state’s health board has blocked Medicaid from covering gender-affirming treatment for low-income trans people. This leaves them without access to life-saving healthcare. Over 9,000 residents of Florida have been affected by the ban.
