  • Transgender woman Sarah McBride shared an Instagram photo on Thursday from inside a women’s restroom in North Carolina, where the recent passage of House Bill 2 prohibits transgender people from using the restroom that matches their sexual identity rather than the one on their birth certificate.

    The LGBT rights activist who made headlines as president of her college’s student body when she came out as transgender in 2012, wrote:  

    "Here I am using a women's restroom in North Carolina that I'm technically barred from being in.
    They say I'm a pervert.
    They say I'm a man dressed as a woman.
    They say I'm a threat to their children.
    They say I'm confused.
    They say I'm dangerous.
    And they say accepting me as the person I have fought my life to be seen as reflects the downfall of a once great nation.
     
    I'm just a person. We are all just people. Trying to pee in peace. Trying to live our lives as fully and authentically as possible. Barring me from this restroom doesn't help anyone. And allowing me to continue to use this bathroom - just without fear of discrimination and harassment - doesn't hurt anyone
    Stop this. We are good people"
