The War On Transgenders Just Got Real In Texas

The War On Transgenders Just Got Real In Texas | PinkieB.com | Gay and Lesbian Life | Scoop.it
Texas is predicted to lose big time as local, national and international companies prepare to go to war over a discriminatory Republican-led bill.

It is amazing that Republicans still want to legislate what bathroom transgender people can use.

The bill also overturns local non-discrimination ordinances that allow transgenders to use whatever bathroom they want.
