HRC Mississippi Meets with Local Gay Straight Alliance to Empower LGBTQ and Allied Youth

by Rob Hill February 25, 2016


Earlier this month, HRC Mississippi Faith Organizer Daniel Ball and I had the privilege of speaking with Clinton High School's Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) organization.

Clinton High, which is located in Clinton, Mississippi, is the alma mater of HRC supporter Lance Bass.

An overwhelming 100 students showed up for the meeting, all of whom were extremely engaged and interested in the issues.  They asked questions about anti-LGBT bills and our work in Mississippi. 

Additionally, several students asked very practical questions about coming out and family support and acceptance.

Needless to say, we were overwhelmed and touched by the experience.  We left the school that day excited about the future of our state with young people like these leading the way.

As young people push to attain the goals of the LGBTQ community in schools and on their campuses, HRC is working to provide tools, facilitate connections with other LGBT student activists across the country and empower youth to fight for LGBT equality on campus and beyond.

HRC Mississippi is proud to be a part of this work. To learn more about our work in the Magnolia state, click here.

He can’t ever admit that he makes a mistake, so he doubled down on his birtherism lies.  He denied saying things he was proven to [...]

It Only Took Twenty Minutes For Trump To Unleash His Dom Side

by JohnGallagher September 26, 2016

Well, that didn’t take long. Donald Trump decided that the way he proves he looks presidential is to start shouting over the woman in the room (and the African-American moderator). Unfortunately for him, Hillary isn’t a sub. If anything, she’s showing that she’s the dom here by goading Trump. Her line that he’s not paying any taxes [...]

Donald Trump Kicks Off The Debate By Thanking His Dad and The Housing Crisis

by JohnGallagher September 26, 2016

Donald Trump is off to a great start: he acknowledged that he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and that he hoped to profit off the housing crisis.  And God bless Clinton for saying that Trump lives in his own reality. If by reality, you mean make-believe universe, that’s totally accurate.
