North Carolina Governor Issues Order After Protests Against Anti-LGBT Law

North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory has issued an executive order regarding the state’s new anti-LGBT law. The law bars transgender people from using the bathroom that corresponds to their gender identity, and eliminates local ordinances against anti-LGBT discrimination. The law has sparked wide protest. Bruce Springsteen canceled a concert in North Carolina, and PayPal and Deutsche Bank said they would scrap plans for expansions in the state. On Tuesday, McCrory said he would expand protections for LGBT state employees and seek legislation to restore the right to sue for discrimination.

Gov. Pat McCrory: "You know, after listening to people’s feedback during the past several weeks on this issue, I have come to the conclusion that there is a great deal of misinformation, misinterpretation, confusion, passion and, frankly, selective outrage and hypocrisy, especially against the great state of North Carolina. But based on this feedback, I am taking action to affirm the state’s commitment to privacy and equality."

The ACLU of North Carolina called McCrory’s order "a poor effort to save face after his sweeping attacks on the LGBT community."
