LGBT Group’s New North Carolina Billboard Reminds Visitors to Turn Their Clocks Back 100 Years

Planting Peace, the organization responsible for the rainbow-colored house across the street from Westboro Baptist Church, recently put up a billboard in Mississippi in response to the state’s new anti-gay legislation.

Now they’ve done something similar in North Carolina, where Governor Pat McCrory signed a law banning LGBT non-discrimination protections and barring transgender people from using affirming bathrooms.

Here’s the billboard, firmly located on the border:

Our billboard is a reminder that laws such as HB2 move us backwards in the movement for equality and fundamental human rights for all. It is also meant to show the LGBT community and North Carolina that advocacy groups such as Planting Peace and others are willing to fight.

We have to meet hate with love; intolerance with compassion. To deny any individual basic human rights based on your individual beliefs is outrageous and unethical.

Our message to our LGBT youth is simple:

You are loved, valued, supported, and beautiful. There is nothing wrong with you, and we will stand by you. You are not alone.

To paraphrase a commenter at Joe. My. God., this marks the first time you can exit South Carolina and find yourself even further back in time.
