Pink News: A photographer has shared a powerful image in order to send an important message about the new laws.
Photographer Meg Bitton decided to shared her image of a young transgender client named Corey Maison earlier this week, in response to the anti-LGBT laws in North Carolina.
In just a 24 hours, the powerful photo garnered more than 30,000 reactions and 18,000 shares.
The heavily criticised ‘bathroom bill’ restricts the rights of trans people to use a gender-appropriate bathroom, as well as prohibiting local authorities from passing bills to protect LGBT people.
In the post, Bitton calls out the North Carolina legislation, highlighting the hypocrisy of those who support it.
“If this was YOUR daughter, would you be comfortable sending her into a men’s bathroom?” she wrote in the photo’s caption.
Then the photographer goes on and tell her readers that “Corey Maison is transgender.”
