wochit News - GLAAD CEO Calls On Music Industry to Speak Out Against Tennessee's Anti-Gay Bills

12 Apr 2016

LGBT media advocacy organization GLAAD asked the music industry to take a stand against pending legislation in Tennessee they say threatens the rights and safety of LGBT people. There is no doubt that these anti-LGBT bills will jeopardize this state’s economy,” GLAAD president & CEO Sarah Kate Ellis said at a Nashville press conference on Monday.“Nashville is America’s music capital, and the companies, artists, and allied businesses here alone contribute more than $9.7 billion dollars to this state’s economy," said Ellis. "I am here today to call on the music industry to stand with us, alongside television networks and film studios who stood with us in Georgia, in a united front against discrimination.” The bills Ellis refers to are the state's House Bill 1840, which would permit counselors to refuse mental health services to LGBT patients, and HB 2414, nicknamed a "bathroom bill," that targets transgender youth.
