no title

It's been about 4 weeks since North Carolina's Governor Pat McCrory signed the bigoted House Bill 2 into law, taking away LGBT employment discrimination protection and keeping transgender students from using the bathroom associated with the gender they identify as.

Since then, entertainers have been raising their voices to stand up for what's right; Bruce Springsteen, Ringo Starr, and even Cirque du Soleil have all canceled shows in the state to protest the bill.

no title

We're supportive of any effort to right North Carolina's wrongs!

By now you've probably heard about the handful of Southern states who have passed anti-LGBT bills that limit rights to same sex couples and transgender individuals… but luckily the rest of the country has been fighting back.

In fact, celebrities, companies, and shows like Disney, Marvel, Bruce Springsteen, Billy Ray Cyrus, The Walking Dead, PayPal, and, more recently, Jimmy Buffett and Deutsche Bank have publicly condemned the Religious Freedom Acts for being blatantly discriminatory and have even punished the states by taking their businesses elsewhere.

However, while these boycotts have brought awareness of the bigotry to the National level, not everyone in North Carolina believes cancelling shows and projects is the best method of recourse.

North Carolina Needs You is a group of organizations and concerned citizens who are urging artists to play their scheduled events and to use them as platform to show lawmakers that they're wrong.

Local LGBT Centers and other queer collectives banded together following The Boss' announcement last Friday, saying:
