🔥 One of NC’s few openly-gay mayors speaks out on Republicans’ continued attacks on LGBTQIA+ people. Carrboro Mayor Damon Seils called out both the U.S. Supreme Court and the NC General Assembly for decisions that would effectively roll-back LGBTQ rights and protections, including a NC ban on gender-affirming care for youth and a ban on trans kids in school sports. Seils was speaking during a #PrideMonth celebration in Carrboro called SmallTownPride. 🌈 It came against the backdrop of an increasingly hostile environment in Republican state legislatures and the Republican-dominated Supreme Court. 🎥 Toni Ocloo for @cardinalandpine
