Apple sign a letter opposing 'anti-LGBT' and status of the legislati

Apple and more than 40 of America’s largest companies, many in the technology sector, have signed an open letter opposing more than a dozen “anti-LGBT” bills moving through state legislatures across the country, saying the measures included in the draft laws of marginalising staff and a negative impact the company.

The letter, drafted by the Human Rights Campaign and published Wednesday argues against so-called “anti-trans” bills circulating in a number of state houses, the reports of the Alabama paper AL.com.

Today’s letter comes a week after the Alabama Senate passed the Child Vulnerable to the Compassi and Protecti Act, or SB 219, which, if ratified by the House will make it a crime for doctors to prescribe puberty blockers or hormes to minors, the report said.

The letter calls public leaders to aband or oppose efforts to adopt such a “discriminati”, the legislati, again noting the negative effects the employees, the customers, the competiti and the wider ecomy.
