High Point Market says visitors cancel over North Carolina HB2 bill

The High Point Market Authority says "hundreds and perhaps thousands of customers" will not attend the largest U.S. furniture market trade April 16-20, following passage by North Carolina of HB2, a bill banning local cities from passing ordinances protecting gays from discrimination. Social media campaigns are calling for a boycott of the April 16-20 show.
