The next battleground for LGBT rights

Mar 9, 2016 by

The last great LGBT rights battle was fought over marriage. The next one might be over bathrooms, whether activists like it or not.

Across the country, LGBT advocates and conservatives are battling over transgender nondiscrimination laws that have again and again turned into single-issue showdowns over access to bathrooms and locker rooms.

The same story has played out in statehouses, at city councils and before school boards. Supporters say the nondiscrimination laws should provide transgender Americans protections in employment, housing and public accommodations. Opponents counter that a transgender woman shouldn’t go into a women’s restroom.
