WUNC, Chapel Hill’s public radio station, produced a radio documentary about the history of HB2 in North Carolina which aired on March 24th. If you missed the original airing, you can still listen to the program for free online at http://wunc.org/topic/state-divided-hb2-and-transgender-rights#stream/0. Also on that website are some interesting reports on the various effects that HB2 has had on our state including the economic, the legal, and political impacts of the bill.
It’s been a year since House Bill 2 advanced through the North Carolina General Assembly. The law requires people to use public bathrooms that correspond with the sex listed on their birth certificate. The so-called bathroom bill is an intersection of gender identity, religion, politics and power. “A State Divided: HB2 and Transgender Rights,” takes a look at the unintended consequences this complicated chapter in North Carolina history continue to present.
