Cuomo Bans Non-Essential State Travel to North Carolina

Source: governor.ny.gov

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today signed an executive order banning all non-essential state travel to North Carolina. The order requires all New York State agencies, departments, boards and commissions to immediately review all requests for state funded or state sponsored travel to the state of North Carolina, and bar any such publicly funded travel that is not essential to the enforcement of state law or public health and safety.

The ban, which takes effect immediately, follows North Carolina’s enactment of a law which bars transgender individuals from using restrooms appropriate for their gender identities, excludes sexual orientation and gender identity from state anti-discrimination protections, and prohibits municipalities from extending those protections to LGBT citizens.

“In New York, we believe that all people – regardless of their gender identity or sexual orientation – deserve the same rights and protections under the eyes of the law,” said Governor Cuomo. “From Stonewall to marriage equality, our state has been a beacon of hope and equality for the LGBT community, and we will not stand idly by as misguided legislation replicates the discrimination of the past. As long as there is a law in North Carolina that creates the grounds for discrimination against LGBT people, I am barring non-essential state travel to that state.”

2. Good for him!

Gov McPervert and his merry band of bigots--obsessed with who is in what bathroom--are going to feel the heat.

I cannot wait to vote that scumbag out in November.

7. i don't know abt the rest but this bathroom thing is stupid

 

are they gonna check ur genitals to make sure "is woman"? i don't think so. if you pass you pass. i "pass" as the opposite sex all the time without anyone caring. to be clear i identify as the sex i was born into (or rather could really give a fuck either).

antidiscrimination protections are more problematic

10. Good

that's what people need to do.

Boycott North Carolina any way you can.

It's the only way to turn the state around, take it back from the hijackers.
