Duran Duran is opposed to bigotry and discrimination in all of its ugly forms, and so it follows that we are opposed to the basic premise of HB2. We support the rights of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual & Transgender community, to have equal opportunities. We support their rights to live free, happy, fulfilled lives."If you live in this State and feel the same way, we urge you to register, so that you can vote; so that your voice can be heard. We urge you to sign this petition which will be presented at the General Assembly meeting on April 25th in North Carolina. You have the power to repeal this outdated and cruel legislation."The band then invited Equality North Carolina's Matt Hershey to bring the petition on stage for them to sign.Watch:PreviousPrevious StoryAustralian Telecom Firm Telstra Reverses Position, Publicly Supports Marriage Equality AgainNextNext StoryWatch the Gay Kiss That Just Broke a Spell on ABC's Fairytale Series 'Once Upon a Time' - SPOILERSShare52 0 Like280 Comments Posted April 18, 2016 at 8:41am ETC by Andy Towlein Discrimination, Duran Duran, Music, North CarolinaFollow UsVideoGay Couple Receives Hideous, Hateful RSVP to Their Wedding: You'll 'Get What You Deserve' - WATCHShare4 0 Like3Gay Wedding Video of the Day: 'EastSiders' Kit Williamson and John Halbach - WATCHShare8 0 Like60Teen Who Was Called 'Gay' Because He Loved Ballet Stuns 'Britain's Got Talent' with 'Billy Elliot Moment'- WATCHShare62 0 Like200John Oliver Explains the Horrific Reality of Lead Poisoning in America - WATCHShare8 0 Like4Bernie Sanders, Ariana Grande, Ecuador, Japan, New York Primary, Drones, Dilma Rousseff, Spike Lee: NEWSShare6 0 Like1Chris Hemsworth Gave an Amazing Answer When His Daughter Asked Him For a Penis - WATCHShare12 0 Like40ColumnsTheatre Review Oscar Isaac, Daniel Radcliffe, Diane Lane, Matthew Broderick, and More Coming to New York Stages: THEATRE NEWSGay Iconography Gay Iconography: Tumbling 4 Boy Georgeinterview RuPaul Talks Game Shows, the Gay Aesthetic and his Dirtiest CharadesFilm Review Weekend Movie Review: Melissa McCarthy is 'The Boss'New Music NEW MUSIC: Pet Shop Boys, Tanita Tikaram, Bob MouldGay Iconography Gay Iconography: Joyful, Joyful for WhoopiTheatre Review Saoirse Ronan and Ben Whishaw Open in 'The Crucible' on Broadway: REVIEWinterview Noah Galvin From 'The Real O'Neals' On Sitcoms, Subversiveness, and Dan Savage: INTERVIEWNew Music NEW MUSIC: Parquet Courts, Explosions in the Sky, BirdyDavid Mixner The Cardinal, The Ambassador, and 'the Little Faggot'Hunk of the DayTom Daley Has The Moves To Work Your Body - WATCHShare9 0 Like8Latest PostsGay Couple Receives Hideous, Hateful RSVP to Their Wedding: You'll 'Get What You Deserve' - WATCH33 mins agoOscar Isaac, Daniel Radcliffe, Diane Lane, Matthew Broderick, and More Coming to New York Stages: THEATRE NEWS1 hour agoGay Wedding Video of the Day: 'EastSiders' Kit Williamson and John Halbach - WATCH2 hours agoTeen Who Was Called 'Gay' Because He Loved Ballet Stuns 'Britain's Got Talent' with 'Billy Elliot Moment'- WATCH3 hours agoJohn Oliver Explains the Horrific Reality of Lead Poisoning in America - WATCH3 hours agoBernie Sanders, Ariana Grande, Ecuador, Japan, New York Primary, Drones, Dilma Rousseff, Spike Lee: NEWS3 hours agoChris Hemsworth Gave an Amazing Answer When His Daughter Asked Him For a Penis - WATCH3 hours agoGay Republican Asks Ted Cruz: What Will You Do To Protect Me and My Husband? - WATCH5 hours agoWatch the Gay Kiss That Just Broke a Spell on ABC's Fairytale Series 'Once Upon a Time' - SPOILERS5 hours agoAustralian Telecom Firm Telstra Reverses Position, Publicly Supports Marriage Equality Again6 hours agoGay Iconography: Tumbling 4 Boy George21 hours agoRicky Martin Steps Out with His New Boyfriend Jwan Yosef22 hours ago'Survivor' Contestant Neal Gottlieb Plants Rainbow Outhouse with Transgender Flag Atop NC's Tallest Mountain23 hours agoNC Governor Pat McCrory Defends Anti-LGBT Law on 'Meet the Press' - WATCH1 day agoEcuador Earthquake, Bernie and The Pope, Wyoming, Princess Diana, Kellan Lutz, Coachella, Hamilton, Calvin Klein: NEWS1 day agoUK Spy Chief Robert Hannigan Apologizes for Agency's Mistreatment of Gay People: VIDEO1 day agoLynne Cheney Endorses Ted Cruz, Who Would Outlaw Her Daughter's Marriage if He Could1 day agoTwo Male Lions Photographed Engaging in Homosexual Behavior in Botswana1 day agoSNL Digital Short Takes on Anti-Gay Bakers and Religious Freedom with Hilarious Mock Movie Trailer: WATCH1 day agoABC News Reporter Gio Benitez Marries Tommy DiDario in Miami: PHOTOS1 day agoYou Might Also LikeDiscrimination North Carolina Crowd Goes Wild as Duran Duran Slams Anti-LGBT Law Under Rainbow Flag: WATCHMusic Gay Iconography: Tumbling 4 Boy GeorgeTransgender 'Survivor' Contestant Neal Gottlieb Plants Rainbow Outhouse with Transgender Flag Atop NC's Tallest MountainDiscrimination NC Governor Pat McCrory Defends Anti-LGBT Law on 'Meet the Press' - WATCHDiscrimination Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and L.A.
