Target Corporation ( TGT ) has weighed in on the transgender bathroom controversy.
Target said that it remains inclusive to all LGBT individuals and that it stands against discrimination. It said it talked this over with its employees recently to make sure they understand where it stands on the matter.
"In our stores, we demonstrate our commitment to an inclusive experience in many ways. Most relevant for the conversations currently underway, we welcome transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity."
Target's recent announcement is in connection to the HB2 law that was passed in North Carolina recently. The law makes it so that transgenders must use the bathroom that aligns with the gender listed on their birth certificates. Ringo Starr and several other artists are boycotting the state due to the law .
The new law passed by North Carolina has also resulted in several business choosing not to expand into the state .
