MATT BOMER CALLS ADS TO REPEAL HOUSTON'S LGBT PROTECTIONS 'HORRIFYING'


Out actor Matt Bomer has criticized the campaign to repeal Houston's LGBT protections.

The Houston Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO) prohibits discrimination in housing, employment and public accommodations based on more than a dozen characteristics including race, religion, sexual orientation and gender identity.

Opponents of the law forced it onto Tuesday's ballot. Early voting ended Friday.

Christian conservative groups opposed to HERO have mounted a vigorous campaign. In one ad, the group Texas Values claims the law would allow “men access to women's bathrooms, shower rooms and locker rooms.”

In a plea to approve HERO, Bomer, who appears on American Horror Story: Hotel, called the claims bogus, saying the messages of opponents “go beyond misleading – they're horrifying.”

“These malicious ads, funded with a lot of money from anti-equality opponents, slander innocent people with slogans like 'no men in women's restrooms' and implying [that] transgender Houstonians want non-discrimination protections as a means to abuse children.”

“You and I know this is NOT true,” Bomer added. “[Without HERO] the fourth largest city in the country is going to be a much scarier place.”

Bomer also recorded a video for the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) calling on Houston voters to approve Proposition 1.
