A day after U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch announced a lawsuit against the state of North Carolina over its laws discriminating against transgender people, Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake joined in the fight.

The mayor has joined with her counterparts in other cities like New York and San Francisco in banning non-essential government travel to North Carolina — and also to Mississippi, which recently passed a similarly controversial law which allows businesses to deny service to people based on their religious beliefs. This puts her on the same side of the issue as Bruce Springsteen, PayPal, Ringo Starr, and Pepsi.

“Those actions stand in sharp contrast to our shared values,” Mayor SRB, a longtime and vocal supporter of LGBT rights, said in a statement.

  1. Agreed! Such a transparent attempt by SRB for free publicity. She jumps on the political bandwagon for a cause that serves no one really. What this law does however is legalize the ability for men (transgender or not) to be in women’s bathrooms.
