LOS ANGELES — Transgender performer Foxxy has come out against North Carolina HB 2, the so-called "Bathroom Law" that passed on Mar. 23 and has been criticized as anti-gay and anti-transgender by its opponents.
"I'm watching CNN now and hearing them talk about the government's action against this, and this is incredible," Foxxy said. "I can't believe that there's still a lot of close-minded people out there in this country that have a hard time accepting us and still cannot treat us as equals. These people do not want to allow us to be classified as what we now classify ourselves to be. We are not aliens, we are humans and fellow Americans. And we deserve the same rights and dignity as everyone else in this country. Some of us are still afraid to be out in public because of how we are treated by society, and that is so sad in a free country."
Foxxy said that those who consider HB 2 protective of children are misguided.
"As far as being a threat to children? That is ridiculous. How are transgenders a threat to children when I have been supporting and raising four children myself, my younger brother's children, and I give them all the most unconditional love and care that any other mother would?," Foxxy said. "I teach my children to love others and teach them about the different people in the world, and not to misjudge people. We all need to have more love and acceptance in this world, especially now."
Foxxy will be attending the Exxxotica Expo, to be held in Chicago from Jul. 8-10.
