This country depresses and frightens me. 😦
After the 2014 election we knew we would be losing ground for a couple of years. The crop of incoming conservatives featured many new, terrifyingly crazy anti-LGBT legislators.
We were right to be worried.
So far, we have seen states nullify all local non-discrimination ordinances protecting LGBT people. We’ve seen new bills granting special religious exemptions to ignore civil rights laws if they feel like it.
