On the latest episode of his web series Gwissues, publicist Howard Bragman hosted an intense conversation between Masen Davis, executive director of the Transgender Law Center, Cristan Williams, director of the Transgender Foundation of America, and Arizona Rep. John Kavanagh, who introduced state legislation that would allow businesses to prohibit transgender people from using the bathroom that corresponds with their gender identity. Kavanagh said his bill came about in response to a Phoenix civil rights ordinance that "made it a criminal act for a business to discriminate against a transgendered person in" a locker room, shower, or bathroom.
