Federal Court Hears Argument for Transgender Clients in Lawsuit Against North Carolina’s Anti-LGBT Law

ACLU

RALEIGH, N.C. - A federal court today heard oral argument on a motion seeking an immediate halt to provisions of North Carolina’s House Bill 2, the law that mandates discrimination against transgender people in single-sex facilities, among other things.

“All I want is to use the appropriate restroom in peace, just like everyone else. It’s humiliating that this law separates me from my peers and treats me like a second-class citizen,” said Joaquín Carcaño, 28, a UNC-Chapel Hill employee and transgender man who is the lead plaintiff in the lawsuit.
