North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory Amends His Bigoted Law To Be Slightly Less Bigoted… See All The Changes!

no title

Is the wrong side of history getting a little too lonely for you, Pat?

As you've probably heard by now, North Carolina passed a law three weeks ago that allowed discrimination towards the LGBT community and also forced transgender individuals to use the bathroom of the gender to which they were assigned at birth.

Luckily, many people across the country, as well as celebrities and even some companies took issue with the bigoted bill and have boycotted the state.

Well, now that Gov. Pat McCrory kind of highhandedly lost his state hundred of jobs and millions in revenue, he's decided to amend the original bigoted bill just a bit.

The Conservative politician released a video message on Tuesday where he tried to defend his discriminatory bill, and while he did fix some of the problems, we don't believe he did enough.

Meet The 10 LGBT Organizations In North Carolina Who Are Urging Artists To NOT Cancel Their Shows!

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:
