Colin Allred supports transgender transitioning for minors without their parent’s consent and allowing biological males to compete in women’s and girls’ sports.


  • Allred sent $1 million in taxpayer funds to a group that supports transitioning young children and hosts drag shows for kids. 
  • In April 2023, Rep. Allred voted against H.R. 734., the Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act, which was an Act that would prohibit biological males from participating in school athletic programs meant for biological females. 
  • Rep. Allred is an original co-sponsor of H. Res. 269, a resolution that calls on the federal government to develop and implement a Transgender Bill of Rights. The Transgender Bill of Rights resolution includes granting a right for transgender students to participate on sports teams and use school facilities, including bathrooms, that best align with their gender identity, and it included a provision to ensure access to “gender-affirming care” for youth and prohibitions on penalties enforced against health care professionals that provide them.
  • In March 2023, Rep. Allred voted against H.R. 5, known as the “Parental Bill of Rights.” One of the provisions would grant parents the right to know if their child’s school allows students to participate in sports or use restrooms or changing rooms according to their gender identity versus biological sex. Another provision would grant parents the right to consent before their child at an elementary school or school grades 5 through 8 had their gender identity officially changed, recognized, and accommodated by the school. 
  • Allred opposed state legislative efforts that would prohibit damaging medical interventions on minors and require students participating in sports to abide by their biological sex. 
    • On April 21, 2021, Rep. Allred tweeted a thank you to the business group Texas Competes for opposing those bills as well.
    • On April 19, 2021, Rep. Allred reposted a video of and applauded then-ten-year-old transgender activist Kai Shappley speaking before the Texas legislature in opposition to the “anti-trans” legislation being considered. 
  • Allred was critical of state legislation to require individuals to use the bathrooms and locker rooms that match the sex on their birth certificates, calling it a “shameful day in Texas.” Allred made the declaration after explaining what “principles” made him a “progressive.”
  • In June 2023, Allred was an original cosponsor of H.R. 15, the Equality Act of 2023. The Equality Act of 2023 expands the Civil Rights Act to include sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity. In February 2021, Colin Allred voted for H.R. 5 – the Equality Act, and he was also an original cosponsor of the bill. In 2019, Colin Allred cosponsored and voted for H.R. 5 – the Equality Act. Video (1:05:53 – 1:06:41) of Allred defending the Equality Act. 
    • The negative consequences of the Equality Act would be far-reaching. It would likely lead to increased rates of parents losing custody of their children if the state and the parents disagree about the usage of puberty-blocking drugs. It would also provide legal protections for school districts wanting to conceal information about children from parents, including efforts by left-wing administrators to “transition” children without their parents’ knowledge or consent. 
    • In October 2021, after Gov. Greg Abbott of Texas signed legislation protecting girls’ sports, Allred said federal legislative efforts such as the Equality Act were needed to nullify Texas’s laws.
  • Allred cosponsored and voted for H.R. 3755 – the Women’s Health Protection Act of 2021. H.R. 3755 claimed “transgender men, non-binary individuals, those who identify with a different gender, and others” had “the capacity for pregnancy.”
