After months of criticism and threatened boycotts, North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory announced he will hold a special legislative session to repeal HB2, infamously known as the "transgender bathroom" bill.
In exchange, the city of Charlotte repealed its own LGBT rights ordinance. Republicans blamed the Charlotte law for the passage of HB2, which requires transgender people to use bathrooms corresponding with their birth sex.
