Despite the “bathroom bill” controversy in North Carolina, Selena Gomez will not be canceling her upcoming concert on Tuesday, June 7. Instead, she has decided to take a stand against the act of discrimination in a different way. In a statement to Billboard, the 23-year-old pop star expressed that she was taught from an early age that everyone should be treated equally. While she considered canceling her show in North Carolina, she ultimately decided to go ahead with her performance and to donate a portion of the proceeds to Equality North Carolina to defeat this act of discrimination. To ensure that she is promoting anti-HB2 sentiments, Gomez and her team have done everything they can, and the venue where she will be performing has gender-neutral bathrooms to welcome everyone to her show. She believes that her generation is the most progressive yet, and she hopes that one day soon, laws like HB2 won’t even be a consideration.
