Hop for Visibility, Awareness, and Equality
Hi! Welcome to the Hop for Visibility Awareness and Equality. You might know us as the Hop Against Homophobia, Bi and Transphobia.
Once again I'm proud to be taking part in this very, very special hop to help supports the International Day against Homophobia and Transphobia on May 17th. If you've been part of the hop before then you know there are several people and publishers connected to this. I've been part of it since the very beginning. :)
And considering I live in Mississippi the timing is perfect. A week after Georgia governor Nathan Deal vetoed similar legislation, Mississippi governor Phil Bryant signed into law a “religious freedom” bill that would allow businesses to refuse to serve gay couples or transgender people on the grounds that doing so may violate the owners’ religious backgrounds.
Following Indiana’s passage of its Religious Freedom Restoration Act last year (not to be confused with the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993) and North Carolina’s slightly different anti-discrimination law in March, Mississippi is joining a list of states that will be risking financial sanction from business for their attitudes toward gay and transgender individuals.
*sigh* Way to go Mississippi. Wait to try and time travel back to the 60s. I swear, sometimes it's embarrassing living in the South.
Any way, let's get to the contest, lol! Drop me a comment below and make sure to add your e-mail addy! What does the winner get? An e-book copy of Trouble Comes in Threes.
