We’re still trying to get information, but it looks like North Carolina’s anti-LGBT law known as HB2 could be repealed today. This appears to be happening because Charlotte repealed its pro-transgender “bathroom ordinance” in a unanimous vote this morning. This likely means there would be no HB2, but there would also be no protections for LGBT people in Charlotte or around the state.
In other news, a transgender girl in an Ohio school district will get to use the correct restroom, after the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals denied a stay in her case.
This is an open thread.
