The fight against transphobic legislation has gained a new troupe of allies: the cast of RuPaul's Drag Race.
The drag performers spoke out against North Carolina's anti-LGBT law, House Bill 2, last week at the taping of the season 8 finale.
In April, Republican Gov. Pat McCrory signed House Bill 2, which strikes down LGBT-inclusive municipal antidiscrimination ordinances and prohibits cities from adopting any new ones. It also expressly requires transgender people to use public bathrooms and locker rooms that do not match their gender identity.
