no title

Over the past year, Donald Trump has said A TON of ridiculous and contradictory things.

But it looks like the politician might actually have to take a hard stance on that whole bathroom bill!

As you're probably aware, back in March, North Carolina's Governor Pat McCrory signed the EXTREMELY controversial law which ultimately prevents a transgender man or woman from using the correct bathroom for the gender they identify with.

Many celebrities and politicians have already come out against the idiotic bill, but The Donald has somewhat remained on the fence — and it sounds like Caitlyn Jenner is okay with it!

Sure, we know Cait used Trump's bathroom in Trump Tower, but NOW we've learned the reality star actually met with the candidate shortly after

North Carolina's Anti-LGBT 'Bathroom Bill' Left Intact By Lawmakers Who Had Opportunity To Change It

no title

This is so sad.

On Friday, North Carolina lawmakers in the state's General Assembly had the ability to change up HB 2 — the bill that stoked nationwide outrage over its discriminatory nature towards transgender individuals.

But unfortunately, the legislators left the bill largely intact, choosing only to make one very minor revision to the measure and leaving it as bigoted and short-sighted as it's been in the past.

The change — voting to restore workers' rights to use state laws to sue over employment discrimination — won't enhance workplace protections on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. It also doesn't affect other provisions that are being blasted by gay rights advocates, business leaders, and more.

No provisions were made surrounding the state's requirement that transgender individuals use the public bathrooms corresponding to the sex on their birth certificates, nor were there

He said:

"Hi everyone. This is Joe Biden and I wish I could be there with you in person to honor some truly inspiring trailblazers. Each of you gives meaning to Harvey Milk's words, 'Hope never remains silent.' And we need you. We need all of you. Because as we celebrate a year of equality in marriage, draconian state laws deny transgender Americans basic civil rights. And in nearly 70 countries, it's a crime. It's a crime to be who you are. And because the freedom to live freely means being free from bullying, free from harassment, and free from violence. You know, our hearts are still heavy for Orlando, but you're showing tonight that we are Orlando. We're all Americans. Unbowed. Unrelenting. We endure. We overcome. We're hopeful and we will not be silent."'

The event will also spotlight LGBT pioneers Billie Jean King, Harvey Fierstein, Marsha P. Johnson, and Sylvia Rivera. Stage presenters include Emma Stone, Macklemore, Lance Bass, Chloe Grace Moretz, Janet Mock, Wilson Cruz and Candis Cayne.

It airs at 8pm ET/PT.

To hear Biden's beautiful video message, ch-ch-check it out (below).

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersPolitikTransgenderLGBT

This is Laura Jane Great!

Against Me! is one of the most popular bands in punk rock, and they just so happen to have a transgender woman as their lead singer.

While that fact doesn't usually factor in when they're deciding on tour dates, the current anti-transgender attitude in North Carolina forced Laura Jane Grace to actively think about performing in the state.

Most LGBT-friendly musicians have cancelled their NC concerts due to Gov. Pat McCrory's bigoted bathroom bill, but Laura actually went the opposite route when deciding what was best for her trans fans.

The 35-year-old singer has been an out transwoman for four years now, so instead of backing out of her show, Against Me! took to the stage in Durham on May 15 where Laura burned her birth certificate onstage!

Now, two weeks later, the trans activist spoke to Vulture about her controversial decision, saying:
