I was excited about this but didn’t expect it to pass. An anti-bullying bill focusing on sexual orientation-based school violence, among other things, passed the General Assembly by one vote. As someone who lived in fear and anxiety as a queer kid in North Carolina, I’m thrilled to hear about this.
