BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) The University of Vermont has canceled its women's basketball team's upcoming game in North Carolina over a state law that governs transgender bathroom access.
The Burlington Free Press (http://bfpne.ws/2bPSPGg ) reports that UVM's Catamounts were scheduled to face the Tar Heels at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill on Dec. 28. UVM's athletic department announced Wednesday that that would not happen.
UVM athletic director Jeff Schulman said the cancellation was a result of concerns over the law, which requires transgender people to use the restrooms in schools and many public buildings that correspond to the sex on their birth certificates, rather than their gender identity.
