Five Things to Know About North Carolina’s Newest, Radical Anti-LGBT Law

by Hayley Miller March 24, 2016

A little over 12 hours ago, North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory signed into law an outrageous and unprecedented anti-LGBT bill.

The state legislature reconvened yesterday for a costly special session where they passed legislation that revoked Charlotte’s non-discrimination ordinance, sanctioned discrimination statewide, put transgender people at increased risk of discrimination and undermined the democratic process in cities and towns across the state.

Here are five things you need to know about North Carolina’s extraordinarily harsh anti-LGBT law:

1)    The law eliminates existing municipal non-discrimination protections for LGBT people and prevents such provisions from being passed by cities in the future. This means that only statewide non-discrimination laws are allowed, and the law passed doesn’t include protections for sexual orientation and gender identity.

2)    The law forces transgender students in public schools to use restrooms and other facilities inconsistent with their gender identity. Additionally,access to  facilities in all government agencies must be based on biological sex as well.  That includes public universities.

3)    North Carolina is the first state in the country to enact such a law attacking transgender students, even after several similar proposals were rejected across the country this year.

4)   Because the law directly contravenes Title IX, North Carolina’s federal funding - at least 4.5 billion dollars- is put at risk.

5)   The law also prevents cities from regulating in areas like living wage laws, benefits and hour regulations for workers in the city, city contracting, and even child labor regulations.
