Transgender advocates again call for repeal of HB2

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – Transgender advocates and allies met Wednesday to once again ask North Carolina lawmakers to repeal House Bill 2.

During a press conference at the North Carolina Museum of History, several people shared stories about their personal struggles of growing up and being transgender in North Carolina.

They say it’s frustrating the legislature has been in session for weeks but have not yet seriously discussed repealing the bill.

“To have them go into their short session and not address it is truly adding insult to injury, they still don’t perceive it as affecting anyone,” said Candis Cox of Equality NC.

Cox says she will continue to call on lawmakers to repealing HB 2 despite the lack of response from many.
