Sarah Fisher– June 7, 2016

New York City’s Commissioner on Human Rights will spend $265,000 on a bilingual ad campaign to educate the city about the choices they have when they need to use the bathroom.

One of the ads features an African-American man wearing women’s clothing and a blond wig, with the caption: “Look past pink and blue. In NYC, you can use the bathroom consistent with who you are.” Another ad features the same language but uses a bearded woman instead of the man.

The bottom of each ad reads: “It’s the law, no questions asked.”
