What’s behind North Carolina’s bathroom bill?

North Carolina has become the battleground for federal rights for transgender people, as the state’s bill outlining bathroom restrictions has provoked responses from businesses, social media, and the U.S. Justice Department. “North Carolina’s law does not come as a surprise, when there is often overwhelming silence about issues facing the trans community, especially trans women of color. This is an opportunity for those of us in support of people’s right to self-determination to speak against this violation of civil rights.” Keisa Reynolds’ story on the bill and some of its repercussions is on Richmond Pulse.
