Vermont Joins North Carolina Travel Ban

From Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin:

“The law passed in North Carolina is an absolute disgrace. Vermont has a proud tradition of protecting the rights of LGBT individuals. I’m making this decision in that tradition. I’m proud to join with New York in taking this action. I hope other states will join us in applying pressure on North Carolina to recognize common sense, common decency, and common humanity and repeal this law.”

Travel bans have also been enacted in New York City, Seattle, and San Francisco. (Tipped by JMG reader Michael)
