FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
This week, NC republicans in the Legislature overrode
Governor Cooper’s vetos of 2 anti-LGBTQ+ bills that were passed earlier this year.
Pride Winston-Salem stands with other LGBTQ+ organizations in denouncing this action in the strongest terms.
North Carolina is about to become the 22nd state in the US to pass laws limiting and in most cases denying transgender healthcare , including hormone therapy. The second bill is directed at transgender people participating on sports teams that are not their biological match.
Undoubtedly, the passage of these laws will wind their way through the court system and the discriminatory tone of the bills will be exposed.
Pride Winston-Salem will continue to monitor and work with other LGBTQ+ groups to bring attention to the progress as well as support the LGBTQ+ community in any way we can.
Pride Winston-Salem’s transgender program-
will be holding educational sessions to provide updates,
listen to public feedback and provide life skills to our transgender community.
We can make change!
Elections matter! Get out the VOTE!
Pride Winston-Salem will provide updates as
they are available-
