Trips to anti-gay states are banned in California

At least, California refused to pay money for trips to the states which have accepted anti-LGBT laws for last 2.5 years. The bill, which is sponsored by Equality California and the National Centre for Lesbian Rights sets out that the state should not be funding other states in which discriminating LGBT people is supported legally.

North Carolina, Mississippi, Tennessee and Kansas are all under fire with the bill as these states have laws which creates discriminations, or creates exemption under anti-discrimination and protection laws. The legislation author says: “California has said clearly, our taxpayer dollars will not help fund bigotry and hatred. If other states try and pass similar laws, we will work to stop them. Our zero-tolerance policy says there is no room for discrimination of any kind in California, and AB 1887 ensures that discrimination will not be tolerated beyond our borders. “
