Several ENC businesses on safe bathrooms map

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Following the passage of House Bill 2, dozens of businesses across the state are speaking out against it.

One of the portions of the bill mandates transgender people use the bathroom of the sex on their birth certificate.

Opponents say it’s discriminatory while the law’s supporters say it protects everyone’s privacy.

This week, a safe bathrooms map was created on Google Maps by Emily Waggoner.

There are 7 businesses in Eastern North Carolina listed. The 6 in Greenville include Crave Restaurant and Bar, Starlight Cafe, Sup Dogs, Happy Girls Bras & Breastfeeding, The Sojourner Whole Earth Provisions, and Unitarian Universalist Congregation.

Carolina Wild Juice in Pink Hill is also listed on the map.

Waggoner wrote on the post if other businesses would like to be included on the map to email her at emilyrwaggoner@gmail.com and include documentation of your support.

The map of the entire state can be viewed here.
