UK Warns its Citizens About America
The UK Foreign office updated its website regarding travel to the United States. It added a warning under “local laws and customs,” stating that LGBT people should know about the new religious protection laws in North Carolina and Mississippi that allow businesses to refuse service to LGBT people. Both laws also require all people to use the bathroom relating to the gender that is on their birth certificates. The laws have caused companies and entertainers to cancel business or performances in those states, and it looks like they could also affect tourism in the future.
