Tennessee Green Lights Discrimination

Tennessee legislature passes and governor signs bill overturning and prohibiting cities from passing non-discrimination ordinances or policies to protect LGBT people from discrimination.

Gay Rights advocates began calling out companies that were part of the Tennessee Chamber of Commerce which supported the bill.  Many of the issued statements opposing the bill and asking the governor to veto it, AFTER the bill was already passed and signed!

AT&T funded the lead organization behind this legislation. Yet, GLAAD gives AT&T awards and sides with them against the queer community on their attempted merger with T Mobile.

All it took for that corporation to do was give some money to GLAAD. Gay Inc is nauseating.
