On Monday Mayor Bill de Blasio and NYC Commission on Human Rights spearheaded the nations first government-led ad campaign affirming a transgender persons right to use the bathroom consistent with their gender identity.
“No one deserves to be denied access to bathrooms or discriminated against for being who they are. Every New Yorker has the legal right to use the bathroom consistent with their gender identity, no questions asked – and these powerful ads affirm this right,” de said Blasio. He went on to say that it a way for New York to set itself apart from other cities and states, highlighting North Carolina by suggesting they have been “legislating intolerance” in recent months.
The ads and videos ask the viewer to “look past pink and blue” and to “Use the bathroom restroom with who you are.” And reminding those who may not agree, “In NYC, it’s the law. No questions asked.”
