Perlman is protesting the state’s recent banning of local LGBT non-discrimination ordinances – and requirements that transgender people use public bathrooms – that match their birth certificates.

The musician was scheduled to perform with the North Carolina Symphony in Raleigh tomorrow night – and in a Facebook post Tuesday, Perlman says he has spent a lifetime opposing discrimination toward those with physical disabilities – and describes himself as a vocal advocate of treating all people equally.
The violinist is the latest in a list of famous artists and major companies boycotting North Carolina.
