"If anyone here is in Florida or has trans family there, someone in the trans gnc employee resource group at my work has had all of their future trans health visits (including labs) canceled, and their medication is prorated as they try to figure out f there’s still any way they can provide trans healthcare with new laws"
A Text conversation between 2 people, composed of 5 messages. All text is white on dark background. One of the recipient's message bubbles are black, and one is blue.

Message 1 (black): So they're ending the ability to get prescriptions via telehealth. I got mine through a private practice endocrinologist so I should be okay for now 

Message 2 (blue): Ok. Well, that's good, at least. So, physical office visits are safe for now?

Message 3 (black): For now. They are also trying to limit it where only a physician can prescribe, not pa's or nurse practitioners but that hasn't passed yet

Message 4 (black):They are taking the same approach the did with abortion before the Dobbs ruling, where instead of banning it outright they are going to make so many restrictions it's just nearly impossible to get.

Message 5 (black):I am privileged in that I have a car and money to pay out of pocket so I will be okay, but a lot of people are going to be devastated

Behind the town of Seaside in Florida lies a lake, which no doubt contributes to the humidity during the day there.

Early one morning, I photographed this dragonfly resting on the fence on a small pier on the lake. The air was still cool, so the dragonfly was probably still sluggish until the day warmed up.

In Seaside, Florida, a photowalk in September is best enjoyed in the early morning to avoid the oppressive humidity and heat that sets in later in the day. But the silver lining is that this early start allows us to witness the breathtaking sunrise over the Gulf of Mexico, casting a golden glow on the pristine white sandy beach nearby.

On Friday, #SCOTUS justices granted emergency requests from the #BidenAdministration and New York-based Danco Laboratories, maker of the drug #mifepristone. They are appealing a lower court ruling that would roll back #FDA approval of mifepristone.

The next stop for the case is at the #NewOrleans-based U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit, which has set arguments in the case for May 17.
