The Lumineers protest North Carolina's HB2
The band is protesting the state's HB2 law but will still play in Cary, North Carolina in September
The Lumineers are the latest rockers to take action in North Carolina. The band announced that they will protest the state’s HB2 law by providing gender neutral bathrooms at the concert in the Cary, North Carolina on September 15 and donating proceeds to charity.
The move follows that of artists like Dave Matthews Band and Cyndi Lauper who have protested HB2, a piece of legislation that dictates what bathrooms transgender persons are allowed to use in public, while still performing in the state. The Lumineers updated their website with a note detailing how they intend to protest after an introduction of the ways this legislation discriminates against the LGBT community.
Then they offered a reward for fans taking stance themselves. “Anyone who donates more than $50 to EqualityNC will be eligible for a Soundcheck party and Meet and Greet that evening before the show,” the band promises.
