UPDATE: House Bill 1476 has been withdrawn.

House Bill 1476 is an anti-LGBTQ+ and Two Spirit bill. 

House Bill 1476 would codify discrimination and essentially make it illegal to recognize LGBTQ+ and Two Spirit North Dakotans. Among a long list of items, the bill would prohibit the state from using a person’s preferred pronouns, prohibit the state from endorsing or enforcing certain policies regarding same-sex marriage, prohibit schools from teaching curriculum that might expose students to the mere existence of LGBTQ+ and Two Spirit people and even ban public entities from hosting or sponsoring drag queen story time.
