North Carolina Governor Criticizes Lt. Governor For Anti-LGBTQ Comment
North Carolina Lt. Governor Mark Robinson has come under the scanner for his recent comments about LGBTQ people. He said, “There’s no reason anybody anywhere in America should be telling any child about transgenderism, homosexuality, any of that filth.” North Carolina is a state where the Governor is a Democrat while the Lt. Governor is Republican. Governor Roy Cooper criticized Mark for his comments and made it clear that he does not support such regressive comments. After repeated calls for resignation and apology from the public, Mark has refused to step down and apologize for his comments.

We are a welcoming and inclusive state and we want the entire nation and the world to know that.”
