Texas Senate Passes Anti-LGBT “Bathroom Bill”

HeadlineMar 16, 2017

Back in the United States, the Texas Senate passed an anti-LGBT “bathroom bill” Tuesday, which would prohibit transgender people from using public bathrooms that match their gender identity. The legislation, SB 6, is similar to North Carolina’s HB 2 “bathroom bill,” which has caused widespread protests and boycotts of the state. The Texas bill now heads to the state House of Representatives.
