Transgender Bathroom Access Cases

This collection includes cases relating to transgender persons' access to public, multi-occupancy restrooms that match their gender identities. The issue rose to national political significance following the passage by conservative state legislators in North Carolina of a state law restricting access to multi-occupancy public bathrooms and changing facilities based on the gender on a person's birth certificate. The law was passed on March 23, 2016, in an emergency session of the legislature called in response to a anti-discrimination law in Charlotte, North Carolina, which expanded anti-discrimination laws to cover LGBT individuals, and gave transgender persons the right to use bathrooms matching their gender identities. Understanding HB2: North Carolina’s newest law solidifies state’s role in defining discrimination.
The below cases represent a special subset of the full Clearinghouse collection.
