An organization called Syryn Records, supported by Girls Rock SB, received nearly $200,000 in grants from the California Arts Council for internships exclusively for women and “gender expansive” youth, which may violate anti-discrimination laws.

The organization’s selection criteria and program descriptions emphasize inclusivity and diversity.

However, legal experts suggest that such discrimination could impact the legal environment and funding obligations. (Trending: Fox News Star Accused Of Major Scandal)

The grants acknowledge the focus on “gender-expansive youth,” and the organization aims to empower marginalized communities through music education and positive mentorship.

“We’ve made it our mission to bring girls’, women’s, and non-binary and gender-expansive youth’s creative dreams to life through inclusivity and diversity,” the record label says.

“We need not 1, not 2, but 5 FEMALE AND GENDER-EXPANSIVE STAFF to help us run our next 15-week SYRYN RECORDS cohort.” Syryn Records wrote.

“In case you haven’t heard, women and gender-expansive people are grossly underrepresented in the music industry.”

“State funding may (a) create obligations for the state to cut off that funding; and (b) may impose additional legal non-discrimination obligations on the entity,” George Mason University professor David Bernstein said.

Girls Rock SB and the California Arts Council did not respond to requests for comment.
