The Advocate reports:
Tennessee businesses and other public spaces will soon have to put up warning signs if they allow transgender people to use the restrooms and changing rooms aligning with their gender identity.
That’s under a bill signed into law Monday by Republican Gov. Bill Lee, just three days after he signed another anti-trans “bathroom bill,” that one regulating restroom access in public schools.
House Bill 1182 requires any “building or facility open to the general public” that allows trans access to post a sign with this language: “This facility has a policy of allowing the use of restrooms by either biological sex, regardless of the designation on the restroom.”
Read the full article. The Tennessee chapter of the Log Cabin Republicans, which has supported other anti-trans bills, last week published an op-ed against this anti-trans bill because it “shames” and “bullies” private businesses.
