GetEQUAL To Protest Houston Hate Rally

Via press release:

Tonight, outside a gathering of right-wing radicals seeking to overturn Houston’s Equal Rights Ordinance, local activists and organizers with GetEQUAL Texas will extend a message of love, welcome, and inclusion for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) individuals. In response to the hateful and mean-spirited “I Stand Sunday” event taking place Sunday night, local LGBTQ and allied individuals will stand outside the event with lighted panels reading “Stand For Love” — an effort to counter the message of exclusion from the Family Research Council and other groups. Houston’s Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO) has come under fire from conservatives, despite having broad local support and broad national support for efforts to extend non-discrimination protections to LGBTQ residents.
