Members of the Tennessee General Assembly have introduced several bills aimed at protecting children across our state. We invite you to take a minute to read our official statement in support of the legislation and to learn more about the purpose of each bill.
Log Cabin Republicans of Tennessee stands for limited government and supports parental rights. We do not believe that those rights include mutilation or sexualization of children. We deplore that our degraded culture puts these principles at odds, and we support Tennessee's efforts to shield kids from irreversible gender treatments and lewd performances.
