When the Governor of North Carolina signed HB2 last week, he not only legalized discrimination against LGBT in the state, but he prevented any city or county from protecting LGBT people locally. This was in response to efforts in the city of Charlotte to create protections for gays, lesbians and transgender people.
Now there is a media-relations firestorm surrounding the state, and the sports world is thrust into the middle of it. While the NCAA and pro sports leagues have talked tough about these kinds of laws, they have never taken action on them, even when presented the opportunity in Houston.
Are they all talk and no action in North Carolina? We discuss.
