Earlier today, Itzhak Perlman released a statement on his Facebook page regarding his decision to cancel his scheduled performance in North Carolina:”As my fans know, I have spent a lifetime advocating against discrimination towards those with physical disabilities and have been a vocal advocate for treating all people equally. As such, after great consideration, I have decided to cancel my May 18th concert in North Carolina with the North Carolina Symphony as a stand against House Bill 2. As Attorney General Loretta Lynch recently stated, HB2 “is about a great deal more than just bathrooms. [It] is about the dignity and respect we accord our fellow citizens.” I couldn’t agree more and will look forward to returning to North Carolina when this discriminatory law is repealed.”

The legendary concert violinist joins other notable entertainers including Bruce Springsteen, Cindy Lauper, Jimmy Buffet, Ringo Starr and Nick Jonas who have taken similar action. For more information go to: Equality North Carolina, the largest LGBT rights and equality group in the state.
