Georgia’s new trans-inclusive equality-law is toothless


A new anti-discrimination law was adopted, which is inclusive of gender identity and expression but without a robust framework to enforce sanctions.

The adoption of the anti-discrimination law was accompanied by massive opposition organized by the Orthodox church.
