Alabama City has passed new legislation banning transgender people from using a bathroom that is different from the gender on their birth certificate.

The anti-LGBT ordinance was approved after Target’s announcement last week that staff and customers were welcome to use the restroom that matches their gender identity. Since then almost 1 million people have signed a petition to boycott the store in protest.

Alabama City’s new law follows a wave of anti-transgender sentiment that has swept America in the past year.

Just last month, North Carolina passed a controversial new law in special session, preventing transgender people using the bathroom of the gender they identify with.

Mississippi have also approved similar laws bills are still being considered in Tennessee and South Carolina.

Legislation dealing with the treatment of gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender people was vetoed by Georgia’s governor.

Meanwhile in Alabama City, anyone found violating the new rule could face an unprecedented six months in jail or a $500 fine.
