HRC Mississippi Hosts Event Following Successful Rally

by HRC staff May 11, 2016

Post submitted by Harry Hawkins, Field Organizer HRC Mississippi

After the rally to repeal the discriminatory HB 1523 in Mississippi that drew hundreds of people from across the Magnolia State earlier this month, HRC Mississippi took time to celebrate the successful event and our community.

“Mississippi: Express Yourself” was an opportunity for volunteers and supporters to tell their stories, offer poems and sing songs of hope. It was a chance for all of us to see how equality and creativity can go hand in hand.

Prior to the event, hundreds of equality advocates joined HRC, NAACP, ACLU of Mississippi, Southern Poverty Law Center, Planned Parenthood and other rights organizations and leaders demanding repeal of HB 1523 on the steps of the State Capitol.

On April 5, 2016, Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant signed into law H.B. 1523, "The Religious Liberty Accommodations Act." More than 75 major national corporations and businesses have spoken out against the horrific measure, that would allow individuals, religious organizations and private associations to use religion to discriminate against LGBT Mississippians in some of the most important aspects of their lives, including at work, at schools, and in their communities.

HRC thanks Soul Wired Cafe and the many people who participated and attended the event.

Hopefully, through events like this, we can expand and support our diverse, inclusive and loving community.

Do These Films And Television Shows Give Gay Men A Bad Name?

by Derek de Koff October 22, 2016

Reddit has been hosting a semi-squabblefest which finds the community bickering ad infinitum about what films and television shows are markedly bad for the gays. It begins, as such semi-squabblefests often do, with a seemingly benign question presented by a certain ShawnSparkles: “Any shows or movies that you feel give gay men a ‘bad name?'” Unsurprisingly, [...]
