UU Justice NC Call to Action – Tell your State Rep & Senator to Vote NO on HB 673 – The Ban on Drag Performances
Last week, NC lawmakers filed HB 673, a drag ban that would make drag performances illegal on public property or in the presence of anyone under the age of 18. A first-time violation of this law would be considered a misdemeanor, and a second offense, a felony. The bill joins a slew of other anti-LGBTQ+ bills currently in the legislature and a few more filed last week, including two more gender-affirming care bans (HB 808, HB 786) and another license to discriminate in healthcare (HB 819).

- Hi, my name is _______, I am a person of faith and one of your constituents.
- I am calling in regards to the onslaught of discriminatory and cruel anti-LGBTQ+ legislation moving through the General Assembly this spring.
- And specifically, I want to urge Sen. ____ / Rep. _____ to vote against HB 673, the bill that would make drag performances illegal on public property or in the presence of anyone under the age of 18. Drag performances are an important part of queer culture and a form of art expression. Drag bans are yet another strategy to restrict gender expression and attack the LGBTQ community.
- I join others across the state in asking the General Assembly to focus on real issues like fully funding the Leandro education plan and increasing the state minimum wage (feel free to name other issues you care about).
