I'm in agreement with many of my lgbt brothers and sisters right now. There are no words good enough to express what we have just heard from US Attorney General Loretta Lynch. She just announced that the Justice Department will be suing North Carolina over its anti-lgbt law.
But her speech announcing the lawsuit will be remembered as one of the greatest, most legendary speeches in not only lgbt history but United States history. I highlighted a part I felt was the most pivotal (when she spoke to the transgender community.):
Good afternoon and thank you all for being here. Today, I’m joined by [Vanita] Gupta, head of the Civil Rights Division at the Department of Justice. We are here to announce a significant law enforcement action regarding North Carolina’s Public Facilities Privacy & Security Act, also known as House Bill 2.
