12. Hunter Schafer sued North Carolina over their 'bathroom bill'
Hunter Schafer is a proud LGBTQ+ activist. Hunter Schafer acted as a plaintiff in ACLU’s lawsuit against North Carolina’s bathroom bill. Writing for i-D, Hunter explained: "What exactly is House Bill 2? Passed in March, 2016, HB2 states that users of public restrooms must visit the restroom that corresponds to their assigned sex at birth, rather than the room that corresponds to their gender identity.” The bill put trans people at risk, in particular those who exist outside of and in between gender binaries. Hunter spent months with lawyers, opening up about her life experience as testimony for the case. The bill was repealed, however, more laws have been put in place since to put trans people in danger and Hunter continues to fight them. [Nicholas Hunt via Getty Images]
