Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey signed an anti-trans sports bill making it a law on Friday. 

According to the new law, every athlete in K-12 public school to compete in sports based on the gender they were assigned at birth.

With the approval of the bill, Alabama has joined a growing trend in the states with Republican-Controlled-Legislatures which discourages trans people from participating in school sports.

Ivey's office confirmed that the bill was signed by the Governor on Friday afternoon.

The bill states that no K-12 public school is allowed to "participate in, sponsor, or provide coaching staff for interscholastic athletic events at which athletes are allowed to participate in a competition against athletes who are of a different biological gender unless the event specifically includes both biological genders."
