  • And thousands of people flocked to North Carolina's capital this week to show both support and disdain for a law that has thrust the state into the international spotlight over its restrictions on transgender bathroom access. The controversial law, North Carolina’s Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act, states that everyone should use facilities matching their birth gender. Under the law, all public institutions must post signs designating that bathrooms and locker rooms are to be used only based on biological sex. Broden Giambrone CEO Transgender Equality Network of Ireland (TENI) and Toryn both join Dil.
