Laws like North Carolina’s House Bill 2 (HB2) are a stain on the United States’ political landscape. Bathroom bills like HB2 are nothing but an attempt to discriminate against transgender people, they’ve caused the number of calls to Trans Lifeline to double. It’s gotten so bad even the European Union has stepped in to say such laws violate international human rights laws. It’s not all bad news though — here’s our roundup of transgender news from around the world.
