PHOTOS: Charlotte residents show up for Transgender Day of Visibility in Uptown

Posted By on Fri, Apr 1, 2016 at 11:57 AM

Opponents of the recently signed North Carolina House Bill 2 ignored the rain and rallied in front of the Charlotte-Government Center on Thursday evening for the Transgender Day of Visibility. Those in attendance called for the repeal of the controversial bill, which stripped municipalities of the power to protect its LGBT residents from discrimination in private businesses. 

Attendees held signs, chanted in unison and handed out "Impeach McCrory" stickers. The following photos were taken by CL editor Jeff Hahne before the rain really started to fall.
