Dave Matthews Band to Donate Portion of Proceeds from North Carolina Show to the ACLU
NEW YORK —Dave Matthews Band announced it will give a portion of the proceeds from its show in Charlotte, N.C. to the ACLU and the ACLU of North Carolina to support its lawsuit fighting the anti-LGBT law HB 2, which removes protections for LGBT people and prohibits transgender people from using bathrooms that correspond to their gender identity.
Proceeds from the May 27 show will also go to Lambda Legal, Equality NC and Time Out Youth.
In March, Lambda Legal, the ACLU, and the ACLU of North Carolina filed the lawsuit on behalf of LGBT clients in North Carolina who have been targeted by this discriminatory law.
