Federal Court Ruling
A federal judge in North Carolina ruled that there is no clause in North Carolina that prevents transgender people from using bathrooms corresponding to their gender identity. Judge Thomas Schroeder made clear that HB 142′s (the replacement for the infamous "bathroom bill") lack of specificity about whether or not transgender people had the legal right to use the correct bathrooms in North Carolina was not enough of a legal argument to stop them from doing so.
For now, NC transgender residents can use the bathroom of their identified gender without fear of arrest.
Same Sex Partners of Diplomats
As of October 1, the Trump administration is now denying visas to same-sex partners of foreign diplomats and United Nations employees. Those not married by the end of the year will be asked to leave the U.S.. The new policy requires that these couples be married, even if they are from countries where same-sex marriage is not legal. The administration portrayed this as bringing its visa practices in line with current U.S. policy extending visas only to married spouses of U.S. diplomats.
October is LGBT History Month
