NORTH CAROLINA — (01-17-21) — History has been made as three North Carolina municipalities have passed discrimination protections for LGBTQ people this past week, right after the expiration of a yearslong moratorium on such measures.

We are happy to report that Hillsborough, Carrboro and Chapel Hill have passed ordinances protecting lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people from discrimination in public accommodations and employment on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of last week respectively.

NBC News Reported ..”These historic events are the first measures of their kind to become law since the 2017 repeal of North Carolina’s infamous HB2 “bathroom bill.” That controversial legislation, which passed in 2016 and restricted which public facilities transgender people could use, spawned national outrage and boycotts that were expected to cost the state billions in lost business. The repeal of HB2, however, was part of a “compromise bill” that placed a statewide moratorium on municipalities passing nondiscrimination ordinances. That bill, HB142, expired on Dec. 1, and advocates were ready and waiting.”

Which cities, counties and states will be next to protect LGBTQ Americans throughout the USA?
