Selena Gomez aims to ‘defeat discrimination’ with concert
Several performers, including Gomez's friends, have decided not to put on shows in the state to protest the House Bill 2 Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act, reported People magazine.
The legislation, also known as 'HB2' or the 'bathroom bill', was signed into law by politicians earlier this year (16), forcing all transgender people to use gender-specific public restrooms. “I am very fortunate to have grown up in a home where I learned from an early age that everyone should be treated equally,” she said.
“I went back and forth on whether I should cancel my concert in North Carolina and ultimately I think what is right for me is to move forward with my show and donate a portion to Equality North Carolina.”
