HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. — The Hendersonville Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays will hold its monthly meeting on Dec. 4, 6 p.m., at the Hendersonville Library, Kaplan Room, 301 N. Washington St..

Guest speaker will be Aaron Sarvar from Southern Equality who will lead a discussion on North Carolina’s HB2/HB142 and Mississippi’s HB1532. He will also touch on Donald Trump’s controversial attempted ban of transgender troops.

Sarvar stated, “Yes, Mississippi law HB1523 is definitely something I’ll talk about and put it into context along with HB2/HB142 here in N.C. as a backlash to the gains that have been made for LGBTQ rights.”
