Megan Fox is fighting Tennessee’s “State of Hate” bills

Megan Fox recently asked her followers to join her and the Human Rights Campaign in combating a series of anti-lgbtq bills in Tennessee. The bills include HB 1151, which would amend the state’s indecent exposure law to prohibit trans people from using bathrooms and locker rooms consistent with their gender identity; HB 836, which would allow taxpayer funded adoption & foster care agencies to discriminate against potential adoptive & foster families who don’t share the agencies’ beliefs; and SB 1499, which would enable schools to discriminate against transgender students. SB 364, which would allow businesses enact discriminatory employment practices, was removed from consideration

Earlier this month, Taylor Swift donated $113,000 to fight the bills, and several corporations, including Ikea & Nike, have spoken out against the bills.
