Moogfest Speak Out Against Anti-LGBTQ Bill | Music News
On Wednesday March 23, House Bill 2 was passed in North Carolina. This bill encourages discriminatory behaviour against LGBTQ* individuals, particularly transgender people who wish to use bathroom facilities that match their actual gender, not their gender assigned at birth (what many call “biological sex”). Moogfest – “the synthesis of music, art, and technology” – decided to speak out.
As the festival is held in North Carolina (Durham, to be precise), those behind Moogfest wanted everyone to know that House Bill 2 does not correlate with their views: “This discriminatory law not only runs counter to the basic principles of equality, fairness, and justice – it is a direct affront to our principled mission”.
They go on to say that “we will take every step possible to ensure that Moogfest remains a safe and welcoming space for all festival-goers, especially the many LGBTQ artists and speakers joining us this year”.
