TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WAWV/WTWO) – It’s been almost two weeks since Governor Eric Holcomb vetoed House Bill 1041 centered around transgender girls participation in K-12 sports.

Tuesday Indiana House Republicans stated their intent to override the veto.

In response to the controversy surrounded around the Indiana House Bill and Florida House Bill 1557, a student led organization at Indiana State University hosted its first LGBTQ+ Walk Out.

ISU’s Spectrum hosted the walk out to serve as a campus resource for issues related to gender and sexuality.

Students surrounded Dede Fountain with signs as they learned about legislation centered around the transgender community throughout the United States.

The demonstration was a national effort as more than 200 school Spectrum chapter’s joined together. Indiana State student Sophia Smith said it was important that she walked out of class.

“Legislation centered around whether or not trans people can be in sports will further create a divide,” Smith said. “That’s not right because transgender people are people.”

The Indiana House will vote to override the veto May 24th.
