As students living in North Carolina, I’m sure you’ve heard all about House Bill 2. (If you haven't yet, do a quick Google before reading this.) One of the ways you’ve probably heard more about it in the news is the fact that many musicians are cancelling their shows in opposition of the discriminatory law. Musical groups and entertainers such as Ringo Starr, Bryan Adams, Bruce Springsteen, Cirque du Soleil, Boston, Blue Man Group and most recently, Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas, have canceled their performances in North Carolina to boycott the law. Seeing this headline really makes me feel conflicted.
