CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Despite hours of impassioned opposition in community testimony, city council members in Charlotte, North Carolina voted Monday night to approve a move that would permit men who identify as women and vice versa to use the restroom that correlates with their “gender identity.”

Over 21,000 area residents had signed a petition in opposition of the proposed expansion of the city’s non-discrimination ordinance, and scores signed up to provide testimony about why city council should reject the proposal.

Pastors, community leaders and others part of a coalition opposed to the changes known as “Don’t Do It Charlotte” also rallied outside prior the meeting.
